I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
I did enjoy the writing style and appreciate Millie's bravery in telling the world her story.
However, I'll have to be honest, it was good enough for me to give it 4 stars, but there were a few things I didn't like. Sometimes the book strays to another time period (like, when she's in Auschwitz the book randomly shifts to life in New York) which is sometimes hard to read.

The writing is just "okay," probably bc the author is transcribing her notes from conversations. I've read 'better' Holocaust memoirs (referring to the writing). It's not a particularly compelling love story (no Bridges of Madison County here). It's a tale of survival, of luck, and of the little miracles that kept her alive during the horror of WWII. you'll read this in a day, btw.

The author is now in her 80s and at times her recall of events is fuzzy but I was impressed with her desire to share her story. I'm amazed at her tale of survival and how she lived in constant fear and endured the hardships, cold and...more
