CHECK IT OUT: The Crestview Public Library as a meeting place

Published: Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 03:18 PM.

This very informative novel features lots of detail about Germany during World War II and the Holocaust. After listening to the audio book, I was instantly drawn into the time and place.

Kristine — the narrator, a young German teenager — falls in love with a Jewish boy just as the Germans order all Jewish people in their community to restrict their behavior and wear the yellow Jewish Star.

After the boy and his family are sent to a work camp, Kristine helps him escape and hides him in her attic. However, both are discovered and sent to Dachau, the German concentration camp, where they remain until the war ends.

This historical novel depicts the horrors of life in Dachau and provides insight into the life of Germans during that time.

The 150th anniversary of this historic three-day battle fought during the American Civil War has passed, but interest in the subject continues, especially for Civil War buffs.
