This was such a good book. I didn't want to put it down. It is a novel but the basic premise is true. It is horrible what happened to some of these people, but the story is really moving.

Absorbing Read for a Biography
I found this book uncommonly absorbing, for being written in a biography style. Mostly you will learn about many events from World War II, and how a true story was played out for the Blumenthal family.
I expected the book to be okay, but as it turned out, I really enjoyed it! I truly recommend this book for anyone at all, who is interested in reading a real life Holocaust story.
