Thanks for the feedback!
very sad. base it off that.
Hannah Stern is at her grandparents house for a Seder dinner when she opens the door for the prophet Elijah and finds herself transferred to the 1940's with her Jewish …ancestors. That time was very bad for the Jews and she finds herself right in the middle of these hard times. Will she be able to escape back to present day New York, or will she be stuck in the past forever...
WWII time period 1940s.
When Chaya takes Rivka's place and marches off to her own death
Because it was Hitlers plan which is sort of like arithmetic and as you know Hitler is the devil *improvision by Shockcom51 in the book it says that each day someone dies 1 pe…rson + 1 + 1 and they call this devils arithmetic also they say counting the days they live and not knowing if tommorrow they will add another day or for how much longer they will continue this devils arithmetic
why is the devil's arithmetic a good book?
The theme is: the importance of remembering. At the beginning; Hannah refuses to remember, but at the end she is begging Rivka to remember for her. the theme of "The Devils At…rithmatic" is about the Holocaust
Shifre is a village girl and one of Chaya's friends.

Classic Books are generally books that have a good story line and are particularly important. Most classics are short and simple to read not saying that a classic may never b…e long. But basically classics have good plot and a simple storyline to follow but is not in any way a knock off. The Devil's Arithmetic fits all theses categories therefor it is deemed classic throughout the ages!
