Helen’s story is one of the most explicit when it came down to her description of the hell she went to and the miraculous strength needed to survive ,..the most basic things that we humans have to help others in need.
I hope others will read this book and pull together to stop the inhumanity we see in world. Hopefully the story will continue to help and be heard for the truth it tells. Books like this should be on the reading lists the high school students are to read. We must not let these stories die, buried in some library.
Heartbreaking and sad but a satisfying read.

Dileep Viswanathan’s ***** review from Bangalore, India
“The rules of our religion did not define us, yet others were defining us by our religion.” Helen was so furious about the way the state treated her community and that was the beginning of something which was referred to as ‘the brutal’ statutory regulations imposed on its citizens ever marked in the history of mankind. This is how fascism also originates, in it’s true sense.
The Seven Year Dress by Paulette Mahurin is a work of fiction which makes you travel through the Nazist Germany and the atrocities created by Hitler when the state turned executioner for its people. When teen-aged Helen has to flee from her family with her brother and friend, the sufferings they had in an underground shelter and then shifted to the concentration camps of Auschwitz and the atrocities they faced there, the blood shed, the murders and the brutal act upon humans are painted viciously in the book. This book gives us nothing new to what we saw about the cruelty of Nazis in books and movies, but the first hand narration of a victim makes this one more emotional.
“You never know a person until you hear his or her story. Stories change how you feel about someone.” – True to the core. A good read.
