        This book is very good. It has some connections with the people sent in the work camps and even though it's fiction,it kinds of give us details of how Jews were threatened in that era. I recommend you to read this book

              A good book that takes you into the Holocaust and has you living along with the Jews. Although some of the facts in book are not correct the author acknowledges that at the very end of the book.
