I did all my reviews and got my points and asked for this book and received it in the mail to read and review. This takes place after the war,people still not wanting to believe all the horrible things that happened and still want to act like they didn't know it was going on at all! It takes you through so much well researched about the country after the war,the people's trial and other exciting things that happened and this woman lives and sees it all! You ,yourself feel all the emotions of what the Nazis put not only the Jews through but just ordinarily citizens and how they just tried to cope with a life that they had no choice to live and watch. Be prepared to feel the emotions for good and bad,have tissues ready.
