really liked it

Another book I almost didn't read, thinking maybe I'd read enough WWII memoirs for a while... But I did pick it up, and it caught my interest so I kept going... Kind of an Anne Frank-ish story, but different in that it was set in Poland, and these 3 families' (plus some others) hiding place was the crawl-space under a Gentile's house. So in a way, worse conditions than the Frank family. At times, there were SS men boarding at the house, too, which obviously added a lot of stress. It made me wonder if I would be brave enough to hide someone in my home if there were a similar circumstance...
