This review is from: Eva's Story: A Survivor's Tale by the Step-Sister of Anne Frank (Mass Market Paperback)
I first found out about this book when my year six teacher was reading it to us in our English lesons. When she had finished reading us this moving story, she told us that she knew Eva and that Eva was coming to meet us to answer our questions! Everyone was so excited because we where all moved by her story. We met her and asked her questions about what was it like not being able to eat a full meal after coming out of the camp. She was one of the nicest woman we met and where really excited when we found out she would be joining us on our year six trip to Holland! We went on a trip to the Anne Frank house and we all felt her pain when we found her Father's name in the book of names of the people that had been killed in the camps. Parts of the story that me and my fellow classmates loved in the story was how her mother had to be marched away but fell pretending to die of exaustion. The guards did not shoot her and she managed to get back to Eva, who was only 14 at the time! I know this review did not tell you much about the book, but hopefully it has told you a tiny bit about the fabulous woman who wrote this sad but triumphant in the end book. I know that many people won't get the chance to meet her, but this book, get's you as close as you need to go! It's one of the best!
