There is so much in this book to unpack that you could literally read it a few times and probably come away with different details each time. It just feels so richly layered and intense. There were several times when I had to go back and re-read a section of pages just to let it sink it more. Actually, when I finished the book, I went back a few pages and reread a section that was a huge turning point in the book just to make sure I got it fully (and honestly, I'm still not sure I did!). But seriously, this book is packed with so much. I really appreciated that the author used some actual text and quotes from historical documents from the first Auschwitz trial; obviously, Hess did her research and I am so appreciative of that.
