An intriguing perspective even if rather controversial.

Amazing. What else can be said about a concentration camp memoir?

I liked that it was from a woman's perspective and that it was written a bit more colloquially than other memoirs (mostly), but I had a hard time with Herbermann. She was just a little too self-righteous for me.
