An incredible story. Beautifully written. Such an important part of history to tell about. Perfect for young adults to introduce to this horrendous period in time.

Couldn’t put it down. Such an important historical accounting of a time and place during the Holocaust that has been overlooked for too long. Highly recommend reading this book. Well written, compelling story.

Excellent

This memoir was a hard one to put down! It was very well written and had a lot of detail regarding the authors journey across Europe.

Informative

I found this book last night, bought it, and began reading it immediately. I just could not put it down. I was disturbed that the world stood by as the Nazis attempted to exterminate an entire race of people. I wept for the loss. I finished high school and began college in the late '60s. It amazes me that this information was not included in our instruction at either instructional level.

This book is really well written, and I am so glad that Linda made sure she had recorded her parents' story before they passed away. This story should never be forgotten that is for sure.
