    The German Girl

    A moving story of the fate of more than 900 people trapped on a ship escaping from Nazi Germany. This book focuses on the fate of one family allowed to land in Cuba and on their descendants who decide to visit the one remaining family member in Havana. A fascinating insight into a shameful period of history and one not that well known. Good story line and characters. The move between now and then is a little confusing but not enough to spoil an interesting story. It is not a happy read.

    A different side to the tragedy

    A look from a different side of the tragedy of the holocaust. Although some survived it makes one realise that the rest of their lives were not always happy.

    The German girl

    I have read previously about the ill fated ship, The St Louis, but never have I read a portrayal like this. From pre war Germany to New York and Cuba present day this book will lead you down a path that you will never forget. An amazing, beautiful and very sad account of man's madness in ostracising the people that don't conform to a set of beliefs that someone , at that time, decided was right . Thank you to the author for this book. It was brilliant.
