5.0 out of 5 stars Best read of the year!, 16 July 2013
This review is from: Ruta's Closet (Paperback)
Ruta's Closet is a very compelling read and very hard to put down, I nearly missed my train stop I was so engrossed in it. I cant imagine that I would have the strength and courage to endure what these people did. This book doesn't just remind us of the crimes committed against the Jews but also weakness of others and that help comes from those you would not expect! It really is a heart moving book!

This review is from: Ruta's Closet (Paperback)

A sad story, with a lot of weakness. I felt it is just another story that must be told though.
