i have been reading a few books about the holocaust recently.

those who save us is fiction. this one is very interesting because it is about a german woman during the war.

sarah's key is also fiction. this one is haunting. but i read it so fast you cannot put it down.

the diary of anne frank. this one you can hardly put down either. i can totally understand why it is the number 2 best selling book of all time. the bible is number one. and she was so talented. i wish she could have lived to share more with us.

the last one i've read is survival in Auschwitz by Primo Levi. this is a short book.. but it give you a very vivid description of what it was like in the work camp.

why all of this? my husband asked me too. i don't really know. it has always interested me and haunted me. i've even had dreams about it..even in teenage years. so i guess i am sort of studying it on my own.. trying to understand this horrible tragedy.. and i think it's good because we cannot ever forget it.

My favorite book is called The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. It is about the Holocost too. It's about a family of Christians who hide Jews and get arrested and imprisoned. I can send it in next month's box if you want. Even though it is about sad things it is really encouraging and I've read it about 15 times.
