Upon the Head of the Goat: A Childhood in Hungary 1939-1944

By Aranka Siegal

The classic true story of one child's experiences during the holocaust.

Nine-year-old Piri describes the bewilderment of being a Jewish child during the 1939-1944 German occupation of her hometown (then in Hungary and now in the Ukraine) and relates the ordeal of trying to survive in the ghetto.

Upon the Head of the Goat is the winner of the 1982 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award for Nonfiction and a 1982 Newbery Honor Book.

"This is a book that should be read by all those interested in the Holocaust and what it did to young and old." --Isaac Bashevis Singer
