The acclaimed National Book Award finalist—“one of the United States’ finest writers,” according to Joshua Ferris, “full of wit, humanity, and fearless curiosity”—now gives us a novel that will join the short list of classics about children caught up in the Holocaust.
highly recommend this book if you want to read about courage and bravery in Nazi Germany/The White Rose: Munich, 1942-1943 by Inge Scholl, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0819560863/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_1d1Wrb1MB875F
"A Train in Winter" is a biography of French women, many of them part of the Resistance Movement,who were sent to Nazi death camps during the German occupation of France during WWII. The desire to tell the world of the brutality endured there was, in large part, the reason that they fought to survive. By no means uplifting, but by all means enlightening and challenging. More poignant to me after recently visiting The National Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.
