One of the darkest chapters of our world history occurred in 1939 when World War 2 happened. It was a time full of strife, destruction, and death. It was during these times that many people were persecuted. Many lives were lost as the people fought for the right to live with their blood, sweat, and tears.
Burt Jagolinzer takes the readers back to this time through the eyes of school-aged friends Ivan Kranofsky and Hyman Goldenstein. In the summer of 1939, the two friends' only worry is vying for the attention of the beautiful Brenda Cropsky. However, this life would not last, as their modest lives would soon be shattered.
By September, the Nazis have sent tanks to push through their small town of Bruzgi. The tanks destroy everything they come across, and the two friends are apprehended by Nazi soldiers and captured. Believing him a Jew because of his friendship with Hyman, Ivan is sent off with him, and they are both subjected to inhuman experiences of terror, humiliation, and forced labor.
“Treated as a Jew” tells the story of how hope and courage remain in the face of unimaginable horror. It is a story of the power of love and friendship, set in the backdrop of one of the world's darkest chapters. The book shows that the will to survive is stronger than the fear of death.
