In Then - Morris Gleitzman's heartbreaking children's novel set during the Nazi occupation of Poland during the Second World War - Jewish orphan Felix and his best friend Zelda have been captured and are on the way to a concentration camp, unless they manage to escape . . .

A little hope goes a long way.

Then the Nazis came.

My name is Felix. This is my story.

Great book . Sad also. Can't put it down once you start reading it . Everyone should read to try and understand the hard time the kids had during the war. The ending is very surprising .A book not soon forgotten !

Then is a very nice book. It has brought me the feelings of how the Jews condition or situation was at that time. I feel very guilty about how much lucky I am to live in a world that doesn't bring war. In some parts of the book I felt like crying but I only knew that it was only the imagination of Morris Glitzman to make us imagine how the Jewsw would have felt. Overall I love this book and I wish there was a movie. I recommed people to read this book and then read Once and the other book which I forgot the name.
