The Journal of Helene Berr

Author: Helene Berr
Genre: Journal, adventure?, life
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8
Type: Non-fiction
Number of pages: 291
Time period: 1940's, World War II, Holocaust
Main characters: Helene
My overall opinion: It seemed to me that this journal was a little slow reading at first. But it was never meant to be public anyway, so. This is the story of Helene who is a French Jew. I'll tell you that in the end, she is captured and executed in Bergen-Belsen, I believe, a few days before liberation. However, to see France at that time from the eyes of a Jew is definitely a new experience for me!
