Product description


…[in] moments of simple, profound human contact the story finds its real power.
(Publishers Weekly 2013-01-07)

[This] personal account with many photos will stir readers to find out more Holocaust history. (Hazel Rochman Booklist 2013-03-01)

A good introduction to a difficult topic-give it to readers for whom a 'true' survivor's story will carry more weight than a wholly fictional account.
(Kirkus Reviews 2013-02-15)

The Last Train is a harrowing account of the Holocaust...a somber and quiet story that though it brings tears to the eyes, still manages to send a message of hope and survival. (Rita Lorraine Hubbard New York Journal of Books 2013-03-12)

The book is emotionally honest, with moving details ... a well-written smooth read. (Dr. Marcia W. Posner Association of Jewish Libraries 2013-06-01)

a powerful story worth reading. (Marge Kaplan Jewish Book Council)

... this is an important story for anyone to read ... The Last Train is an accessible, yet heart-wrenching, account that will hopefully help to educate a new generation. (Liane Shaw Canadian Review of Materials 2013-05-17)

"Readers will be amazed at the everyday persistence of children and parents to stay together and support each other." (Resource Links 2013-10-01)

Arato tells the story matter-of-factly, but it is of itself a gripping story for young readers, of a young boy's memories of a time in human history that should never be forgotten.
(Books for Kids Blog 2013-05-08)
