Shadows of Berlin by David R. Gillham
"Let's preface this review with the fact that the author David R Gillham and I have the same last name and have met and are VERY LIKELY distant cousins. That , in no way, has any bearing on my review.

I loved David R Gillham's "City of Women". He mana" Read more of this review »

“The grandpa just stares backward at a world that no longer exists, or forward at a world beyond his comprehension.”
David R. Gillham, City of Women

“Certainly she no longer thinks of the future, because every day the future proves itself to be a duplicate of the present. So instead she roots through the past.”
David R. Gillham, City of Women

“I saw your face, and I knew that I simply had to hear the sound of your voice.”
David R. Gillham, City of Women

Someday I will understand Auschwitz. This was a brave statement but innocently absurd. No one will ever understand Auschwitz. What I might have set down with more accuracy would have been: Someday I will write about Sophie's life and death, and thereby help demonstrate how absolute evil is never extinguished from the world. Auschwitz itself remains inexplicable. The most profound statement yet made about Auschwitz was not a statement at all, but a response.

The query: "At Auschwitz, tell me, where was God?"

And the answer: "Where was man?”
William Styron, Sophie's Choice

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
Anne Frank, Anne Frank's Tales from the Secret Annex: A Collection of Her Short Stories, Fables, and Lesser-Known Writings

“It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.”
Anne Frank

“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.”
Anne Frank
