The people who sheltered Régine cover a wide spectrum of human types, ranging from callous to kind, fearful to defiant, exploitive to caring. This is a story of a brave girl and an equally brave woman to tell the story so many years later.”
This was such a quick read. I read it in about 2 hours while I was watching amovie and I never was bored. The mystery of who everyone was and what would happen to Regine kept me deeply immersed.
Also, before I forget, thank you to my aunt for recommending this to me! It was so nice to pick up a historical book again after all the fantasy I’ve been reading.
So back to the book. It really was a quick read but it’s so well put together. There are pictures in the middle and there are some statistics at the end that really helped me understand the magnitude of what went on during that time period.
I also really liked how it ended. It’s not like they could control how her story ends like in fiction but I liked that it wasn’t a happily ever after. It painted a realistic picture of what so many families went through.
The Final Verdict:
If you’re looking for a quick but meaningful historical book, this is it. I was immersed in this girl’s story and definitely came to know a lot more about the Holocaust.
