Gifts from the Enemy

Reviewed by

Based on the experiences of Holocaust survivor Alter Wiener, Gifts from the Enemy tells of the Jewish teenager who receives a remarkable gift from a German woman that not only comforts him but saves his life. Contemplative, gentle, and wise, Weiner’s story, told by Trudy Ludwig and depicted through Craig Orback’s tasteful yet realistic artwork, helps young readers understand the injustice of stereotyping and the poignancy of love and kindness, even if it must remain hidden. Ages six and up.
