My daughter, 11 yrs old, chose your book as a school project. She couldn't put the book down because she was so interested in reading about your life. In fact, she was so taken by the book that I began reading it after she was done. I must tell you that I was moved to tears by the hardships of your life. I couldn't imagine anyone going through the hardships that you endured especially someone as young as you were then. It was a miracle that you and your family survived such a horrific time in history. As an American and a human being, I hope this kind of hatred is elimated from our world. The suffering which is endured by innocent people should never be felt by anyone. I hope our country and world can move towards people not only for my generation but especially for our children.

hello.. i think that the book I have lived a thousand years was very imformative about the holocaust. It was a wonderful book. I recently finished it two days ago and it was very inspiring.By the way, i think everyone on this website is heckling the poor lady! She is awfully busy and probaly has no time to answer petty questions- Sarah, grade 8

I got done reading your book at school. I still can't believe how someone, especially at your young age, could survive this along with your mother. I don't know how anybody could do this to other people. Its sad to think that there are people in the world who did that. The book was very good and it taught me to never give up hope and to always treat people with respect and never be mean to them no matter what the situation.

I just got done reading your book and i thought it was interesting, but kinda sad that people would do that to other people. Your book has taught me to not be mean to others. Thanks for teaching me of this stuff. I learned a lot.

Wow I just got done reading your book at school. That is something i will never forget. I still can not believe that you, your mom, and brother went through all that, especially at that young. I'm around the same age you are and I don't think I could ever be that strong and also never give up hope. Your book really made me think about how I lose hope easily and give up. I'd really like to thank you for what you taught me in this book. I didn't know a teenager could be in that much pain and still believe that you are going to come out and leave the concentration camp. Once again I would like to thank you for that book. I just wanted to say that. Thank you. Bye

I have just finished reading I Have Lived a Thousand Years, and it is truly a great book. I'm currently working on a school project, over her life, but I can't find much info, all I have found are things from her books. Please, help!

Dear Mrs. Bitton-Jackson,
I have just read your book as a Jewish Biography Report book. It was truly amazing. I wanted to know if you had anything more on her life. (pictures, timeline, highlights of what she does, ect.)
I really hope you can help me.
Plus I aslo must dress up like her.

Elli: Coming of Age in the Holocaust is a very touching book. I'm reading it for the second time now and it brings tears to my eyes. I feel so sad and horrified that little children died...over 6 million jews. The book taught me to appreciate my family and not take things for granted. I am glad that Elli, Bubi and Elli's mother made it.
