Mengele’s Apprentice ~ Auschwitz Twins #2 (by Roberta Kagan)

I love reading historical fiction books set during WWII. This one was a little different. There were three separate story lines that meshed together. The view into Mengele’s depravity and his reasons for conducting the experiments he did on twins, the gypsies, those with abnormalities (one blue eye and one brown eye, etc.) will make you shudder. It was difficult to read the details of what life was like for individuals who endured life in Europe during the war. While not a warm fuzzy read, the realities of the horrendous acts that occurred during Hitler’s reign of terror are important to know so that history is not repeated.

Thank you to NetGalley and The Book Whisperer for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
