Another gem from Harry Turtledove. I can't seem to be drawn into his more fantasy based series, but I love his alternate history ones. This was a short story (took me far longer to read than it should have) but it was amazing and left me wanting to see more of this world he created.

The basis for the story was a Nazi victory in WWII and after the fact they created shtetls filled with actors who immerse themselves in the life and culture that the Nazis had destroyed- think modern day King's Landing or Sturbridge Village type of place. I don't want to say more. I don't want to spoil the story for you. I highly suggest this short story and it can be picked up in ebook form for .99 at Barnes and Noble but can be read online for free here:
