really liked it

This is a moving account of a woman [one of only a few] who received an education in a country that does not normally educate women and her terrible story of surviving a holocaust in her own home then her escape to a country that much as it took in refugees it is almost another survival story in that country.Her courage in speaking out is a testament to why she has been able to survive and in some ways an account of neglect from countries that do not have to deal with genocide in our midst so we can ignore that which happens far away
