A different but crucial perspective
Reviewed in the United States on May 20, 2017
I really enjoyed this book as there are many on the Holocaust but few from a German's point of view. So often we read how brutal the Germans were that we forget there were some who were opposed to the war. While the story had its share of sorrows, the overall feeling is one of finding goodness even in the most difficult of situations.
The writing itself was compelling and it held my interest. I read it in one sitting. I would greatly encourage the reader to read to the end as it is well worth it. I felt a sense of humility and compassion among the main characters that it was truly a fulfilling read made even better by the fact it is based on a true story. Well done!
