The Yellow Bird Sings by Jennifer Rosner



The story of Roza and her five year old daughter who are Jews in Poland during World War II


  • Bond between mother and child
  • Historical fiction
  • Hope
  • Love
  • World War II



The Yellow Bird Sings is a really unique look at World War II. I have heard many stories of Jews hiding from Nazi soldiers. Hiding in attics, or basements, or closets.  I have never heard of people hiding in a hayloft, burrowing deep into the hay to avoid being seen. Or hiding in the woods and digging deep into the dirt to sleep and hide. I was captivated by the ways people tried to survive. 

At the heart of this book is the relationship between Roza and her daughter Shira. The bond, the difficulty and the love of these two felt real and at times was heartbreaking. 

My copy of The Yellow Bird Sings was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
