"Painful yet profound." -Booklist, Starred Review
"It's a harrowing book, complete with harrowing photographs, that's insightful about connections to other historical events without losing sight of its main topic; its emphasis on youth experience, both in Korczak's orphanage and elsewhere, adds a dimension often undertreated in other explorations of the topic." -Bulletin
