know where to look when the child said she was hungry...she could have gone home and brought food back to the child but did not even think of this. I would not have been able to sleep until i'd fed the child. Anyway I don't recommend this book at all.
One of the things I really appreciated is that it is a very warts and all account - talking about the terrible suffering and desperate (and impressive) efforts of the community to alleviate it, as well as the contrast with life of the better off ghetto residents, and against this ghastly backdrop of fear and daily struggle you see the day-to-day life of a young girl coming to adulthood. While I knew the general story of the Ghetto, this drew you into it, giving a three-dimensional idea of what it really felt like to live through it. A lot of eye-witness accounts were written years later, but this one was written at the time, which gives it incredible power. An amazing book.
