Read in September, 2010

This is my travel book. I do not know how I missed this holocaust testimonial book, but I am glad to be reading it.
some of what is written is most likely stories told to this woman after WWII because her independent memory would not be so mature.
I have listened to stories about WWII almost my entire life and most people have many blank areas or retro amnesia.
I will say it is a well written testimonail and I am grateful that read her story.
Schindler's List I could feel the boots of the Nazi's as they marched through the ghetto. I am not hearing or feeling those boots in this story.
