Of all the places in the world, Uri really loves to be at his
grandparents' house. There he can stay up way past his bedtime and
eat as many sweets from the chocolate box as he likes. There's only
one forbidden place in that house: the third drawer in Grandpa's
desk. This drawer is locked. No one ever opens it until one day
when Uri finds the key to the third drawer. From that moment,
nothing is ever the same.
"Grandpa's Third Drawer" takes up the difficult challenge of
discussing the Holocaust with young children, of teaching its
heritage and memory, all in a gentle and unobtrusive manner. The
story of a silent grandfather unexpectedly confronted by his
curious and loving grandchild is accompanied by rich illustrations
that show authentic preserved objects donated by Holocaust
survivors from Theresienstadt.
The original Hebrew edition won the Israeli Ze'ev Prize for
Children's Literature in 2003 and twice won the first prize in
Mits'ad Hasfarim for first to third grades (in 2003 and 2012), a
nationwide survey of all schoolchildren in Israel.
