    1. Read in 2001 for the Black Diamond book club.favorite quote: "In Germany, the Nazis came for the communists adn I didn't speak up because I was not a communist. Then they came for the Jews and I didn't speak up because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the labor unionists and I didn't speak up beaucse I was not a labor unionist. Then they came for the Catholics adn I was Protestant so I didn't speak up. Then they came fore me. By that time there was no one to speak up for anyone."


    2. The book We Are Witnesses is written by Jacob Boas. The book is five first hand accounts of children that died in the holocaust. David Rubinowicz, Yitzhak Rudashevski, Moshe Flinker, Eva Heyman and Anne Frank are the names of the five children. Jacob Boas took their dairies and put them into a book that is not only moving, but supported with facts about World War II. This piece of literature is an amazing read and will leave you breathless times five. We are Witnesses brings you inside the lives [...]


    3. What gets me about this book, is that the stories are real. These entries are from real teenagers who have gone through something so horrifying, and yet their stories are being told. They have a voice, that will live forever. When I was reading this book, and looking at where their families have come from, I couldn't help to think about my own family. How my family came from similar places in Europe, and it could have been anyone. This book reminded me of how we need to keep their voices alive t [...]


    4. This was an interesting book. Everyone's heard of or read Anne Frank's diary, but her war-time experiences are a little bit unique because her family was in hiding. In this book, four other diaries by teenagers are discussed at length, each portraying a different aspect of what it meant to be Jewish in occupied Europe during the war. Among the other diarists were families who were forced into ghetto life, or who fled the country and pretended to be Christian to escape notice, and these stories a [...]


    5. What a poweful and wonderful book!! This book will make anyone not take life for granted. Within his book we hear from 5 teentagers, David, Yitzhak, Moshe, Eva and Anne and their struggle with survival during the Holocaust. This book is overflowing with emotion. Starvation, fear of death and left to die are some of the experiences that these teenagers face. Once you start reading this book, you won't be able to put it down. This book can used in the classroom when learning about the Holocaust. K [...]


    6. This was a really good book, in a sad way. The Anne Frank section is short and used more as a comparison to the others than a standalone section but I figure that's done on purpose do to her diary being it's own book. The section that spoke to me the most and that I found to be the most interesting and most sad was that of a little girl named Eva, seriously her story is one that had me scratching my head the entire time. Why did she live like this? why did she go through that? Why didn't they he [...]


    7. Today is a cloud Sunday morning; I just had breakfast, and lay in my hammock to continue reading it. I feel devastated for David sobbing at his beloved father’s departure to a forced labor camp, without knowing the fate that waits for him there, and if he will ever see him again. Even more when Yitzack’s mother, after many other failed desperate attempts, gets a yellow pass (a pass that allows the survival of a family of four under the greatest of the beast’s Reich in Lithuania), and they [...]


    8. Wow! I loved this book! it's about 5 different Jewish teenagers who wrote Journals and were later found after the war. The commentary is great and it's just an amazing book to hear from 4 different teenager's points of view of how they lived in the Holocaust, their lives, their thoughts and feelings, their struggles.I say 4 because Anne Frank is the epilogue and the last teenager. I skipped that because I want to be surprised when I read her diary in the original book with no commentaries. But t [...]


    9. Reading through this book made me emotional. I have heard and read about the holocaust several times but this book evoked fresh sad feelings in me. It’s like I had just heard about the holocaust. I couldn’t help but shed a tear when I read David’s story, the young boy recorded how the Nazis considered Poles sub human. How every Jew in Krajno, a small village South of Warsaw was killed. Jews in Kielce were not allowed to travel in vehicles, they had to walk and were forced to wear an arm ba [...]


    10. Overall, I'm a big fan of Holocaust literature. I am continually amazed by how people responded to such a tragedy. This book left a bit to be desired. It had the potential to be powerful but didn't quite make it there. Positively, the variety of viewpoints from Jewish teenagers from a variety of backgrounds, and I liked how historical fact was intertwined with the journal excerpts. However, I did not like the organizational technique. I didn't feel like I was getting a full picture of the charac [...]


    11. We Are Witnesses was an amazing book to read this semester. In my book We Are Witnesses it talks about the tragedy that occured in 1939-1945 and how Jews got through World War 2. But in this book, it specifically talks about 5 teenage Jews that wrote about their experience of World War 2 in their diaries. That’s what I liked about the book, it’s a nonfiction book that tells the reader what has happened in the past and what people went through as a person. The first point of view I read from [...]


    12. We Are Witnesses by Jacob Boas is a book about 5 teenagers and their experiences under Hitler's rise to power and the Holocaust. The book follows the lives of David Rubinowicz, Yitzhak Rudashevski, Moshe Ze'ev Flinker, Eva Heyman, and Anne Frank as they write down their encounters and challenges that Jews faced. David Rubinowicz lived his life happily until the arrival of the Germans. He struggled as his freedoms were taken away so quickly, and eventually his parents as well. He recounts his st [...]


    13. I did learn a few things I hadn't known before. I liked the comparisons at the end. I'd love to read more. I feel it's everyone's duty to learn about the horrible things the Jews endured so it never happens again.


    14. This is my second time reading this book. It is a little different as it gives excerpts from 5 teens that experienced The Holocaust. Sadly all 5 died as a result. This is geared to young adults, but is a good read for all.



    15. 1.This book is about Jew teenagers that wrote journals about what happen during the German invasion and their lives explaining how they felt about Jews getting killed for no reason they were afraid of going outside and get killed without their families knowing they got killed. 2.I liked the beginning of the it was very interesting how this Jew teenager survived by him self out there with no family. I really like this book but it needs some more action in it because sometimes it was very boring.3 [...]


    16. BOOK REVIEW #6 Author: Jacob Boas Melissa Guzman A/B2This book was very sad and emotional. I can't believe that some are so heartless to hurt others ove a religion. These teenagers were very strong and full of hope to stay strong. Some were about my age I dont know what I would have don in there case. The strong teenagers were all unique and showed courage in there own way. David showed how he struggled and feared all he went through, in a very well set matter. Yitzhak showed how jews clugged th [...]


    17. This book was very interesting in that it tells the stories of five individuals, taken from their personal diaries. I enjoyed the fact that this gives the reader the opportunity to compare and contrast their experiences of World War II and the Holocaust - they are boys and girls, they are from different countries, speaking different languages, they are Jews with varying degrees of devout-ness, etc. I would have preferred to read each narrator's entire story; in this book there are direct quotes [...]


    18. The book was a very strong minded book. David Rubinowicz, Yitzhak Rudashevski, Moshe Flinker, Eve Heyman, and Anne Frank went through things that no teenager should ever go through in ther life from people calling them bad people to shooting them in feilds in Poland. My qoute for this book would be "They died because they lived and they lived because they had a reason to and they had a reason because they were Jewish." I think that their reason to live was because they had to share their story f [...]


    19. The book was a very strong minded book. David Rubinowicz, Yitzhak Rudashevski, Moshe Flinker, Eve Heyman, and Anne Frank went through things that no teenager should ever go through in their life from people calling them bad people to shooting them in fields in Poland. My quote for this book would be "They died because they lived and they lived because they had a reason to and they had a reason because they were Jewish." I think that their reason to live was because they had to share their story [...]


    20. The book We Are Witnesses by Patricia C. McKissack and Jacob Boas is a collection of diary entries during the time of The Holocaust. This book Is narrated from the perspective of five different jewish teens. (There names were, David Rubinowicz, Yitzhak Rudasherk, Moshe Flinker, Eva Heyman and Anne Frank.) Throughout the pages of the characters diaries some of the perspectives change like in David's case he was never really close to his father until his father was taken to work at the labor camps [...]


    21. I loved the idea of curated journals from other teens. Really gives you insight into how things were in various countries and in various situations Jewish people found themselves in in the war. Too much intrusion from the author, though. I wanted longer passages from the journals, at least at times. I've taught several of the stories in my class.


    22. I have recently finished the book We Are Witnesses. The story was being told from the perspective of 5 teenage Jews that went through the holocaust. There names were David Rubinowez, Yitzhak Rudasherk, Moshe Flicker, Eva Heyman, and Anne Frank. In the book most of the people's perspectives didn't change but in David's story his perspective did change. In the beginning before his dad left he thought awful things about him. But once the dad left to the labor camp he realized how much he loved him [...]


    23. I thought this book was extremely truthful and very sad. Reading about what people had to go through during the Holocaust, it was just sad. I chose this book because I had to read a nonfiction book and this one really interested me.I've always been interested in the Holocaust. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy that as well- and sad books. My favorite person in this book is probably Moshe. I really liked his how is faith was fluctuating but he also raised back up and proved loyal to [...]


    24. We Are Witnesses had five stories in it about five teens in the Holocaust. In this book you will find five teens who try to survive”,” but “they “either succeed or fail and face the horrible concentration camps. You will find scared people and those who will speak out against what they know is wrong. This book is historical fiction”,” and I prefer to read historical nonfiction because it is real and not fake. If I could change one thing in this book it would be to add some more inter [...]


    25. This book consists of five diaries of teenagers who were killed in the Holocaust: David Rubinowicz, Yitzhak Rudashevski, Moshe Flinker, Eva Heyman and Anne Frank. It is so very interesting to read how each of the teens viewed what was happening around them and to them. The five diaries are compared in the final chapter and that is really quite compelling. These children all started keeping diaries in the early or mid-teens until they were brought to an extermination camp and killed. It is also v [...]


    26. I often feel like the Diary of Anne Frank gets TOTALLY overdone when it comes to the Holocaust. I liked We Are Witnesses because it's a complilation of pieces from five different diaries (one of which is Anne Frank's) written by Jewish teens during the Holocaust. The teens came from five different areas of Europe. Exerpts from the diaries provide insights into the culture that existed in the Ghetto once Jews were placed there. The exerpts also speak to the feelings these very same Jews had that [...]


    27. I read this book for a book report at school and loved it. It was more emotionally affective then reading a regular World War II book in history class. This book Consists of five diaries written by five teenagers who died in the Holocaust. These diaries were written by Yitsak, David, Moshe, Eva, and Anne. All of these teens were pulled apart from there family and killed before they could finish the last sentence in their journals. These are all Jews and were all affected negatively by the German [...]


    28. The subtitle will suck in readers: “Five Diaries of Teenagers Who Died in the Holocaust.” This book tells the stories of these Jewish teenagers, but the book is NOT all diaries. The book contains five accounts of the teen’s lives and deaths by Jacob Boas, with liberal quotes from their diaries. The accounts are touching and very sad. The last account is a summary of Ann Frank’s diary. The diary wishes to communicate that people remain hopeful and courageous to the end, despite the circ [...]


    29. This book is not complicated in syntax but it is difficult to get through, mainly because of the subject matter. The book follows journals of Jewish teens as they face the gruesomeness of war. As the title tells you none of the teens survived. The journals they left are the only thing we have of them. Each teen grew up somewhere different and has a different perspective on Nazi invasion. The author has pieced together details about their life in various concentration camps to help you understand [...]
