This is just disgusting. In fact, it makes me want to lie and say I was never German. I'd like to pretend from here on out like I have no genetic link whatsoever to Germans, much less as direct a one as I currently have.

I don't understand why nobody ever told me that the Nazi soldiers killed young Jewish children immediately after they got to the concentration camp, b/c the soldiers considered young children useless. They couldn't work in the camps, b/c of being too young, so the soldiers killed

Acabo de terminar este libro. El libro es una autobiogarfia pero lo mas inpostante es que realmenet tiene la voz y la ingenuidad de un niño de poca edad. Todo lo que le pasa esta narrado de una manera unica y sencilla. Tambien es muy interesante su historia despues de la guerra y como termina en los Estados Unidos.
