it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction, sr2017

Twin girls arrive at Auschwitz and immediately become part of the experimental population of twins known as Mengele's Zoo. Pearl is in charge of: the sad, the good, the past. Stasha must care for: the funny, the future, the bad. This was harrowing, haunting, and somehow lyrical. I couldn't put it down. So beautifully written ...
"A violet night was falling and we heard a clock ticking in the air, addressing us, telling us that we were running out of time. Two steps farther, I realized that this sound was only the pound of my heart, though the message remained the same. The ticks quickened when we rounded a corner and saw a Red Army soldier ... leaning against a wall alongside a broom. I wondered if that broom was so young that it had only the experience of sweeping ash and rubble."
