Heartbreakingly sad, undeniably inspirational
on 8 May 2014
You can't 'enjoy' a book like this - it's too harrowing for that, but it is an exceptionally good read from a completely different view of the Holocaust. I've read many books by survivors of the concentration camps, but this book tells the sad story of a little girl who dodged the massacre that killed her family, and who survived the rest of the war in hiding. The depths of her fear and despair are felt page after page, and it's so terribly sad. I can't imagine what it must be like to be left with no living relative so brutally and suddenly. But survive she dud, with a steely determination to honour the request her beloved mother asked of her. Download this book, be prepared to shed tears, but it's worth it, because we must never forget the atrocities that were carried out against the innocent Jews - God's chosen people.
