|aHannah resents stories of her Jewish heritage and of the past until, when opening the door during a Passover Seder, she finds herself in Poland during World War II where she experiences the horrors of a concentration camp, and learns why she-- and we--need to remember the past.
30th Anniversary edition with a new introduction from the author Hannah is tired of holiday gatherings-all her family ever talks about is the past. In fact, it seems to her that's what they do every Jewish holiday. But this year's Passover Seder will be different-Hannah will be mysteriously transported into the past . . . and only she knows the unspeakable horrors that await.
