Reviews

Combres' story offers readers intimate access to this chapter of history as well as considerable potential for discussion.-- "Bulletin of The Center for Children's Books"
...a short, easy-to-read novel about a Tutsi girl's survival during...shocking times.-- "CM Magazine"
It is a compelling story that would be an excellent addition to any school or public library collection.-- "VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates)"
This short, spare novel, translated from the French and based on the author's interviews with survivors, tells of the massacre and then the trials and aftermath, all from the viewpoint of a child...the child survivor's authentic experience makes this an excellent addition for the high-school Holocaust curriculum.-- "Booklist"
With simple, straightforward language, Combres gives her readers a glimpse into the inner landscape of trauma that a girl such as Emma would have suffered, and the ways by which she might emerge from it.-- "Toronto Star"
...a gentle narrative...well-focused...[readers] will find this brief work approachable and evocative.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Gracefully composed.-- "Resource Links"
Broken Memory shows what it takes to overcome trauma yet not remain defeated by it.--Yoo Kyung Sung "WOW Review"
