Shmuel and 5 other men were getting ready to pay the price for trying to escape and it was to be shot. So when they were about to shoot Fayge was in the crowd watching and she… jumped from the crowd in front of Shmeul and was shot also in the process of killing the 6 men. But this is a is a Question of Interpretation (Are questions that have more then on good answer) so she could have jumped in front of him because she loved him and wanted to die with him, she also could have done it so maybe it would stop the Nazi's from shooting the men, also she loved him and she wasn't part of the escape plan because she wanted to live to her next meal and didn't go with them and now regrets it so she was trying to prove to him that she loved him, or just wanted to be selfish and get out of the camps.
No, Grandpa Dan was in America at the time of the Holocaust. Grandpa Will was the on in it. He went to the concentration camps and everything. If you remember, he had th…e number on his arm. :)

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...
It is the story of a Jewish girl who goes back in time to a nazi concentration camp. It has very true to life graphic scenes. In my opinion it is age appropriate.
Look closer at the stories thats all I can say
when she went through what her grandfather went through then she finally got why her grandfather was angry with her when she wrote the numbers on her arm.
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.
Yes, there is. It is called The Devil's Arithmetic.
Because as the jews died it was like the Devil was capturing them and killing them. and it is arithmetic because of the NUMBERS (math numbers) on their wrist and it was like a…dding and subtracting and there were no more jews.
