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

Review:

“A simple and beautiful account of the life of a Jewish family as, step by step, war and anti-Semitism creep closer to the Hungarian town in which they live, finally engulfing them.” ―The New Yorker

“Through the description of the destruction of this family, the enormity of the annihilation of European Jewry is shown...A sensitive portrait of a remarkable young girl and her family” ―Starred School Library Journal

“This is a book that should be read by all those who are interested in the Holocaust and what it did to young and old” ―Isaac Bashevis Singer
