The last distinction I found was the age of Cindy Lu. In the book, the say that Cindy Lu was no more than two. But in the movie, she looks older than two. Cindy Lu has a bigger role in the movie than the book. I found many differences in the book and movie.

Many times people take things for granted. For example, we think since food is always provided to us we shouldn’t be thankful for it, or for pure drinking water or even for our freedom. Most of society receive this benefits, and we assume everybody gets them too, unfortunately that is not the case. Not all people can afford these privileges. We may not perceive them as that on the contrary, we think of them as needs, and fortunately for us we can afford to enjoy them. However, in the past this was not the case for most people.

In the intro of the book Hannah says “I am not hungry. I ate a big dinner at Rosemary’s. And I do not want to go to the Seder. Aaron and and I will be the only kids there and everyone will say how much we have grown even though they just saw us last months” (3-4).

In the Devil’s Arithmetic--both the book and the movie--Hannah, a young Jewish girl, begins the story by heading off to her Seder Dinner, much to her dismay.

She greets her favorite aunt, Aunt Eva, at the door, and unenthusiastically goes along with the celebration, drinking too much wine and treating everyone with disrespect.
