Read in December, 2007

A very different view of Nazi-occupied Poland. I enjoy reading World War II books and I enjoyed this one because it was from a perspective I hadn't read about before. The accompanying pictures were nice; I just wish there were more. It is amazing what people did to protect their fellow jews and the lengths the jews had to go to to hide themselves (reverse circumcision!!!).
