5.0 out of 5 stars A very moving book to read in this time of luxury and greed., 24 Feb. 2000
This review is from: A Square of Sky: Memoirs of a Wartime Childhood (Paperback)
This book certainly brought me down to earth with a bump. An excellent (true) story of a young girl escaping the holocaust in the WWII.
This is not one of those "I hate Nazis books" in fact I feel that she showed great awe for the first German that she came across. It is more of a 'The war will be over soon and we can return to our middle-class way of life once again'.
You will always hear people today saying, "I would have escaped" or "I would have fought back". After reading this you will appreciate why nobody could escape or fight back.
The awareness that they are slowly becoming trapped in the ghetto that first offered them sanctuary is almost suffocating. If you're content in your protected little world and want to come down to earth a bit then this is the book for you.
