  • Excellent book

    Every high school student should read this book, for history or literature. It tells the story of a young girl who spent her teens growing up in a German concentration camp. I've seen the movie which was used as evidence in the Nuremburg war crimes trials. This book tells the truth, the experiences of someone who lived thru this nightmare. One new fact about the Auschwitz=Burkenau camp. Who knew there was a family camp there?

  • Powerful and gripping

    This book is outstanding, although the subject matter is pretty grim the author manages to make the protagonist, Dita, both fragile and courageous, determined and anxious by turns.
