Another telling of the Holocaust, this time from the perspective of a modern teenage girl who only grudgingly accepts the Jewish traditions, but when she is asked to "open the front door" as part of the Seder feast discovers that she has been whirled into the 1940s and stepped into the life of a prisoner in one of the German death camps, where she experiences its horrors firsthand.

The rabbi says it's October 26 5703 and then Rivka says the Christian year is 1941, but the Hebrew year 5703 began in September 1942. Fall 1941 should be 5702. The rabbi also says October. He should've said Cheshvan. The date should've been either 5 Cheshvan 5702 or 15 Cheshvan 5703. See more
I was thinking about how much help I could be to all of us.
What do you mean?
I had a history teacher who spent a whole semester talking about the Jews during the war, you know what I was doing? I was writing notes to my friends. I have no idea what my teacher said. The only thing I remember is that no one paid any attention to all of this.
You have a very vivid imagination, and it is causing you much needless pain.
I wish that was true.
