Sarah's Key

In mid-July 1942, French police conducted a roundup of about 10,000 Jews in Paris – holding them in the Vêlodrome d’Hiver until transport to camps. Ten-year-old Sarah experiences that horror. She tries to save her toddler brother by locking him in their cupboard, believing that someone will be able to return soon and free him. The author juxtaposes the story of American Julia Jarmond, who is investigating the roundup, and Julia’s French in-laws, who are connected to Sarah. Brief chapters create a heart racing pace as all is revealed. "Zakhor, Al Tickah." Remember. Never forget. You won't.
