5.0 out of 5 stars Melissa Irish of Western, Oregon ( United States), 3 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: I Have Lived a Thousand Years: Growing Up in the Holocaust (Mass Market Paperback)
I loved this book! This was a wonderful book. And I suggest that you read it. I am jewish and I am deeply interested in the holocaust and if you are too, this book is perfect for you. This is probably the first book that I have ever read twice. This book is too good for words.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great, descriptive story!, 9 Nov 1998
By A Customer
I reccomend this book to anyone who likes to learn about the holocaust. It is very sad and unfortunate that Livia Bitton-Jackson and so many others like her had to actually live through the conditions that she describes in this book. I never thaught that people could be so heartless and selfish until I read a story about the Nazis. I think this is a good book for teens and adults alike, but break out the tissues because it is very sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best book!, 25 May 1999
By A Customer
This book is one of the best books that I have ever read. It is the best book for you to read if you want a book about the holocaust that covers it all. There may have been some survivors who went through more than Elli, but so far out of all the books that I have read about the holocaust, this one tells a story that is the most horrible. All that the Jews went through is definitley unbelivable. You gotta read this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sydney Taylor Award Honor Book for Older Children, 1 April 1998
By A Customer
The vivid language of I have Lived A Thousand Years recalls a searing personal experience during the gory final year of the Holocaust. Hope offsets brutality in this intimate diary delivering a gripping, breathless honest drama about a teenager for her peer group. Bitton-Jackson's writing is outstanding; readers need exposure to English of this caliber.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense reality of the Holocaust, 1 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This book was breath taking. It was so intense and so moving. It's like being there with Elli through all the concentration camps, through all the emotions. It was a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a book, 4 April 2010
This review is from: I Have Lived a Thousand Years: Growing Up in the Holocaust (Mass Market Paperback)
I have read several books about the holocaust and this one really stands out. Written for a younger market, the book has the maturity borne out by the title and the simple, frank style makes it all the more powerful. Her descriptions of the small events and blind chance that influenced the survival of all are heart-aching. There are also useful appendices listing the main events of the war and explaining the language used in the book, which would make it very accessible for anyone without background knowledge of WW2.
