it was ok
bookshelves: nonfiction

This book was a very coarse, no-hold back candid view of WWII. I'm interested in this time period, and this book was different in that this Jewish family was never sent to a concentration camp and was able to hide for over 6 years. the author paystribute throughtout the book of his sisters survival skills and heroic behaviors.
this boy really never had the chance to be a child. the author was overtly anti-Germans. although I realize he had every reason to hate them but openlytalked about deserved deaths and when given the opportunity treated Germans that where kind or at least humane to them, like second class, making sexual advances, and spitting on them. I guess this is war mentaily something that I hope not to understand.
