Author: Eleanor Ayer
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Number of pages: 244
Time period: 1940s, World War II
My overall opinion: This book is the parallel stories of a Hitler Youth Nazi (who became an officer by age 16) and a Jewish young woman who went through Auschwitz – and survived. It will be an eye-opening book for anyone who doesn’t have much knowledge of the Hitler Youth or of the concentration camps. It’s mesmerizing and unforgettable.
