it was amazing
Read in September, 2010

** spoiler alert ** Wowie zowie - what a wonderful book. I'm such a suker for anything relating to the Holocause, but this was such a wonderful story blending the present with the past. American journalist living in Paris is asigned a story about the massive roundup of Parisian Jews in July 1942 by the Parisian police - not the Nazi's who really ordered the round-up. This was called Veld'Hive after the place where they herded the people. They spent days there without food, water or sanitary conditions before they were shipped off to camps and then right away to be killed at Auschwitz. Sarah, the heroine of this story managed to escape one of the camps. This is her story pieced together by the journalist and how the present connected her to Sara's life. Excellent.
