I really tried to like this but ended up skimming very quickly over some of it then quitting halfway. Maybe it's not the book but maybe it's just that I'm interested more in other things right now but it just couldn't hold my attention.

"Where's Sylvia? The Story of an American Child Lost in Nazi Germany" Six year old Sylvia visits Germany with her aunt & uncle in 1939 and disappears into the heart of WWII. As a maturing child she shows courage and determination, as well as the ability to block the big picture and find some small joys in her days. An interesting view of life under Hitler's reign and life for German citizens. 280 pages

Good book but definitely based on a child's perspective of war. Nothing really about the Jews. Didn't really delve into characters as to why she and her aunt didn't get along, etc.
