A beautiful, yet sad, book. It brings the horror of the holocaust to life, something of which we should all be aware. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, although it is hard to believe so much evil could have continued almost unnoticed. A great deal of research must have gone into this and the author should be applauded for bringing together the two sides of humanity. Unbelievable cruelty, but at the same time love and compassion. I would definitely recommend this book.
