The book is chilling in its matter of fact narrative. The industry that was the holocaust is well documented of course, but Eva's story makes you realise it could happen to almost any one of us today. Prejudice is all around us and one thing leads to another.
Perhaps the section I'll remember longest comes at the end. Eva returned to her Amseterdam flat, where her furniture and things were largely as she'd left them and got on with the rest of her life.
A powerful read; guaranteed to make you think!
Explains why Anne's father managed to find somebody who he knew who was widowed in similar circumstances. The holocaust survivors had all gone to the Red Cross Centre again and again to read lists of survivors hoping to find their loved ones. Never knew Anne's father and the family eventually moved to the UK to get away from it all and lived round the corner from me and my family in Edgware, NW London.
