This was a beautiful yet at times heart wrenching book I honestly just laid in bed holding this book to my chest crying when I finished it This book was beautiful and had a very powerful message The message woven throughout this novel at least what I personally thought it as was forgiveness and not judging people based on their outward appearance or their nationality This spoke volumes to me I am a descendant of a Dutch resistant worker I had distant uncles who died in concentration camps I have read countless books on WW2 and the Holocaust I have heard story after story "of Nazis and their oppression Yet as awful as the Nazis were "Nazis and their oppression Yet as awful as the Nazis were
