The Violinist of Auschwitz (by Ellie Midwood)

I am a huge fan of historical fiction books set during WWII. This was an emotional read and I enjoyed learning about Alma Rosé and her time in Auschwitz. Her willingness to stand up for “her girls” was astounding. This view of life in a concentration camp during WWII was a little different. Yes, you still experience the horrors and the way the people were treated. But you also got a more focused picture of a few particular areas of the camp. The strength and sheer bravery displayed by so many of the inmates was so admirable. Once again you will be shocked at how a person’s genetics will have them judged as unworthy. I continue to be amazed at the ability so many displayed to face each day with hope.

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