I know very little about this horrific time in human history and can’t wait to read and learn from this author’s work.

This book is so intriguing and hard to look away from with it’s topic. Looking forward to reading it!
Patricia Barraclough says
T%his is an important bit of history that few get many details about, especially the young. I have always felt that one of the best ways for people of all ages to learn it to put it at a personal level. Whether that be in first person accounts or fictionalized versions of the events recounted in a manner based on fact, the reader can relate and will retain the information much more readily than from a textbook.

I read books about WWII to understand, what my grandmother’s family faced during this time in Poland. We must never forget! A good book to introduce younger readers to the history of this time and help them understand, that this must never be allowed to be repeated.
Linda Fast says
What an amazing journey, I am not sure I could have walked around the death camp. This piece of history must never be repeated. I have heard incredible stories from people who lived through out Europe and what they went through. Some of the stories ave me nightmares.
