    One thought on “Lydia, Queen of Palestine”

    1. What Firsthand perspective historical fiction so students can contextualize the effects of the Holocaust beyond the concentration camps.Now What Rather than read the oft used texts associated with the Holocaust, like The Diary of Anne Frank, or Night by Elie Wiesel, I thought it would be nice to use something the kids could relate to I geared this text set towards 8 9 graders, and I think this is a great piece of juvenile fiction for them to relate to and experience the Holocaust tragedy with I [...]

    2. BOOK OF MY CHILDHOOD It s funny, I really had no concept of Palestine as a child Nor did I really have a comprehension of what time period this book is set in WWII I mostly remembered all the food descriptions like Lydia getting sixty meatballs from her mom to take with her to Palestine, and some of the kibbutz stuff And I forgot what a wonderful, funny narrator Lydia is Not a kid I would ever want to babysit, but she s such an obstinate, bright, holy terror with such a huge personality No wonde [...]

    3. While this book takes place during the Holocaust, the plot is about Lydia, a pre teen living in Romania, who is dealing with her parents ugly divorce Uri Orlev does a great job getting into Lydia s adolescent head The readers are only privy to the horrors of war based on what Lydia knows, which isn t much beyond her own reality Her mother secures a spot for her on a train to Israel During the journey, as Lydia gives away her meatballs in exchange for a better seat, ice cream and other silly plea [...]

    4. gr 4 7 170pgs1930s WWII Bucharest, Romania Kibbutz Tel Harish 10 year old Lydia is used to having her own way, but there is one thing she cannot change her mother and father separating No matter how many times Lydia uses her dolls to act out her parents reuniting, real life refuses to cooperate Another thing that Lydia cannot change is her mother sending her to live on a kibbutz On the kibbutz, Lydia struggles to get her own way and the times she can t she learns to make the best of the situatio [...]

    5. Every time I go to my parents house, I m reminded that my mother did indoctrinate me a bit into Zionismor at least the Jewish narrative P My shelves are filled with books on Jewish themes that she placed there.When I was younger and less Jewishly invested, the thing that struck me the most about this story was still the relationship between mother and child the letdowns of being scolded yeah, I was hypersensitive myself to the real fears of boarding a train for Palestine during war time, never k [...]

    6. Maybe if I read this book as a child I would have loved it as much as other reviewers As an adult, I felt it was very muddled between serious WWII issues for Jews, and the personal drama of affairs and divorce Didn t like Lydia at all, she was rude and selfish constantly, even narcissistic The book did show how vague adult issues can be for kids They see complicated subjects through a haze and try to make sense of it, but it s like seeing without glasses when you need them I would have liked a s [...]

    7. Lydia is an extremely imaginative ten year old growing up in Romania during WWII This might make you think of the story of Anne Frank, but Lydia is nothing like Anne She is spoiled and obnoxious and always finds ways to get her way Lydia s parents have divorced, although she doesn t realize it yet, and her father has left the country with another woman Eventually, Lydia s mom finds a way for them to flee the dangers of Romania, and seek safety in Palestine Once there, Lydia makes a new home and [...]

    8. This is a great book written for kids which is also entertaining and educational for adults The cover is misleading It is a serious book about serious matters, but written in a way that is light enough for children A young girl has parents with a failing marriage, but they love her and are trying to protect her at the start of World War 2.

    9. I really need to re read this bookI remember reading it a few times in elementary school, but I m pretty sure I thought it took place in NYC, and that she went off to boarding school, not Palestine, haha.

    10. Besides A Song of the Whales, Uri Orlev has some of my most favorite books of all time This one is right up there If you re interested in the Holocaust, his books are the best
