Jacobsen writes with intelligence and unusual frankness.-- "Publishers Weekly" (12/10/2001 12:00:00 AM)
Jacobsen's memoir of the Holocaust represents a unique perspective -- one that should be included on school library shelves.--Susan D. Yutzey "Book Report" (3/1/2002 12:00:00 AM)
What makes this survivor's collection of vignettes unique are the collages and artwork by professional artist Jacobsen that are intermingled with the text. Written simply, the book brings the reader into the insecure world of the author as a ten-year-old girl.--Beth Gilbert "VOYA [Voice of Youth Advocates]" (2/1/2002 12:00:00 AM)
An unusual blend of memoir and image that reveals the horror of war and the transformative power of art.--Randy Meyer "Booklist" (1/1/2002 12:00:00 AM)

Succeeds in bringing past experiences back to life... Jacobsen uses autobiography to voice experiences silenced by history, to speak back to oppressive structures, and to claims new positions of power.--Manuela Costantino "Canadian Literature" (6/1/2004 12:00:00 AM)
