Paperback £7.99

In the late summer and early autumn of 1938, ten-year-old Ruth Block, along with her father, mother and best friend, Miriam, must navigate the increasing pressure placed on the Jewish population in Frankfurt, Germany. Ruth grows more worried by the day. Her father's stationery store is shut down; she and Miriam are mocked in the street; their school is closed. Then one night in November, the family's flat is broken into. Ruth's father is dragged into the square and arrested, along with hundreds of other Jewish men. Ruth, her family, her friends and her community struggle to survive the fiery night and the terrifying, uncertain future ahead of them. Featuring non-fiction support material, a glossary and reader response questions, this story takes readers to Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, one of history's most important moments.
