Note: 
A Christian peasant boy is punished by his cruel and all-powerful lord by being sent to the Prague Ghetto to be a servant in the household of a Jew. Tomas is bright but his mind has been filled from birth with anti-Semitic superstitions and hatred. How his thinking changes as he lives with a Jewish family and experiences life in the Ghetto is at the heart of this beautifully written and illustrated story, one of the best books ever to be written about anti-Semitism for children.
