This book is a very eye opening read, it informs you on how corrupt the Second World War was and what it did to so many people, It didnt just destroy the Jew's lives, it destroyed many other people's lives because so many countries were involved with th war, it insights you and is a very hard book to put down. It makes you questions, like why would people support such an evil man, he ripped people's lives from them because of who they were. It is such an amazing book and it is set out and written beautifully. I would reccomend this book to anyone who loves books on wars or to people who like books set out as a diary. It is set out in diary from but it isn't a true story. It tells the story from Rachel's eyes and it puts such a bigger effect on the book. It shows how much she had to mature, grow up and accept what was goin on in her life.
This book was about world war 2 it showed how the war didnt just affect the army but people that live nearby.I have never read a book like this and I loved it and want to read more books similar to this one and I definitely recommend this book to everyone because I'm sure you will love it
This book is amazing. It captures the terror of a child hidden in the holocaust perfectly!
I strongly reccomend this book!
