Deeply felt, the honest perspective of history.

After reading Ms. Politus' "Mourning series," I couldn't wait to begin this book.
I found history from my early years, beginning to make sense...at least the geography and chronology of events reported.
I rejoiced in the humanity laid bare, of the "kabutznicks" and the amazing fortitude of those who endured so much.
I am ashamed to admit my aversion to so many realistic events. Somehow, I'd believed the news had sensationalized their reports. I realize now, how selective is our hearing when faced with senseless, bitter hate.
Again, I congratulate our author for her ability to convey the triumph of basic souls, devoted to faith and humanity!
Going forward, I'd suggest you continue to enlighted us sheltered beings, on your insights into the history of the Jewish race. Try as I might, I've almost no true insights into what has created such hatred towards such gentle and loving people. It makes me crazy to wonder, how each segment of history seems to revile and segregate Jews from proximity.
