Read in June, 2011

Reading historical fiction books based on factual times & people, time & again I am amazed by the resiliency of the human spirit. It sounds cliche but... it's not. Read this book. If you think it is a "happy" story because it's about "survivors" you are incorrect or deceived. It is extremely horrifying what humans can do to each other, especially with knowledge. This was a difficult but good read. I sobbed continuously & truly felt for the people, especially the four: Leonie, Tedi, Zorah, & Shayndel. Thank you to Anita Diamant for presenting another little known period of history to the world- the aftermath of Hitler's WWII, the British Internment Camps in Palestine... the Holy Land, indeed. And thank you for the Epilogue bringing closure to the stories.
