I could barely put this book down at all. It alternates chapters first with the account of a young Jewish girl-Sarah and next with a middle aged journalist-Julia. Sarah was taken to a camp with thousands of other French children during a round up in July 1942. When she left her home, she locked her little brother in a cupboard, thinking she would return to free him. Sixty years later, Julia is asked to do a story about the round up, and had no idea how it would change her life.

When I received this book as a gift, I had no idea about the history of Jewish persecution in France...or that it even existed at all. Everyone should read this book, to learn, and to remember.
