It is difficult to comprehend how anyone could experience the lives the characters in this book did and survive to become normal - but then they aren't "normal" in my take on the world! The characters converge from Hitler's Germany and apartheid South Africa - both sides of the colour divide, and this is how their lives interact with each other and affect the outcomes. Quite shocking and depressing, but fascinating all the same. Unfortunately I found the end a little stange which rather let the book down for me.

Interesting timely subject
1 December 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
The subject was timely and interesting. I know several Jewish people who were born and raised in South Africa. After they were grown, they left to come to the United States because they couldn't stand the Apartheid laws and wanted a different life. The characters in Ms. Shonstein's novel bear very little resemblance to the people I know. Her characters are all 'out there' so to speak. There is very little if anything to like about them. By the end of the book, she neatly wraps everything up with "Baby" somehow having an epiphany and starting off on a new path with a new found empathy for the black people he'd previously had no problem keeping in their place. It as okay, not great.
One of my favorite reads

I loved this book and I think it's about time I read it again. Wonderful story and a chance to learn what life is in another country
