I am a huge fan of books based during WWII. This was a different viewpoint in that you experience the war through the eyes of the German people. While their tribulations were nothing compared to the Jewish people they did live through bombings, loss of their loved ones … a variety of hardships. This book focuses on how some of the German citizens did what they could to help protect the citizens who would have suffered at the hands of Hitler’s regime. This is a great journey through family, love, loss, and the will to survive.
