Mapping the Bones

The year is 1942, and Chaim and Gittel, Polish twins, are forced from their beautiful home and made to live in the Lodz Ghetto. Their family's cramped quarters are awful, but when even those dire circumstances become too dangerous, their parents decide to make for the nearby Lagiewniki Forest, where partisan fighters are trying to shepherd Jews to freedom in Russia. The partisans take Chaim and Gittel, with promises that their parents will catch up -- but soon, everything goes wrong. Their small band of fighters is caught and killed. Chaim, Gittel, and their two friends are left alive, only to be sent off to Sobanek concentration camp.Chaim is quiet, a poet, and the twins often communicate through wordless exchanges of shared looks and their own invented sign language. But when they reach Sobanek, with its squalid conditions, rampant disease, and a building with a belching chimney that everyone is scared to so much as look at, the bond between Chaim and Gittel, once a source of strength, becomes a burden. For there is a doctor there looking to experiment on twins, and what he has in store for them is a horror they dare not imagine....

Mapping the Bones Reviews

  • Eleonor

    Jag kan inte sluta gråta. Trots helt fiktiv känns den så brutalt verklig. De är svårlästa, dessa böcker om Förintelsen. Men så länge jag lever kommer jag fortsätta läsa dem. Det är det minsta jag kan göra för alla liv förlorade.

    Two children live in a small house with their parents. They find themselves in a dark and foreboding woods, lost and cold. One day, they stumble upon a house of candy, filled with promises...and danger. "Hansel and Gretel" takes on a new spin in this third phenomenal and heartbreaking book about the Holocaust from master storyteller Jane Yolen. We traveled through time with "The Devil's Arithmetic", awakened Sleeping Beauty in "Briar Rose", and now we find ourselves in the woods of Poland and at ...more

    Is it coincidental that I am reading and hearing so much about Polish Resistance fighters during WWII? I knew about the German resistance fighters but not so much about the Polish fighters. This past year I've read books, papers, and heard lectures on the topic of these fighters.

    The story in Mapping the Bones kept me reading and feeling depressed when the bad things happened, yet a book about the Holocaust needs the bad things so they weren't unexpected. The good things that happened were very u

    I know exactly who the doctor is and his horrific experiments, too - which is going to make this an even harder read. It looks like this is going to be a loooooong book and I'm probably going to sob like a baby at the end of it.

    Stark, bleak, and sometimes moving. This book is powerful, but not always moving. The writing sometimes got in the way. Yolen's writing was inconsistent. Sometimes the story moved quickly, other times the writing was very dry. The last 130 pages moved very quickly, but the ending was abrupt. I loved Gittle's memory sections. Those were the most powerfully written moments. The sections with the doctor were horrifying and powerful. The other sections of the story varied for me. I think if she had ...more

    This meaty WWII story that is a retelling of the Hansel and Gretel tale with Chaim and Gittel, twins who are taken to the labor camps in 1942 and the horrific abuse they endured especially being young twins at the hands of an evil doctor.

    The beauty of the book is Chaim's poetry and their familial and deeply-felt connection to one another, while also using chapters every so often for reflection by Gittel about those times that adds a layer of beauty like so many adult novels do to provide a stor
