  • 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?

  • Chilling beyond imagination

    This story is not for the faint hearted. It is a depiction of the terrible things that happend at Aushwitz-Bikernau and many other concdntration camps. This is a book that needs to be read by many people because even if it isnt your history, it is the world's history. We cannot forget.

  • Historical Fiction WW II Auschwitz

    Dita Kraus is a teenager when she is taken to Auschwitz with her mother and father. They had been living in the Terezín ghetto in Prague, conditions were terrible and nothing could prepare the family for what they are about to endure. Books are prized possessions in the camp, they only have eight and Freddy Hirsch asks Dita to take charge of the books and she becomes The Librarian of Auschwitz. Based on a true story, the books are tattered and worn but they are precious. Dita and her books are a symbol of hope and in a time when the people in the camp had very little. An emotional story, be prepared to shed a few tears and fours stars from me.
