Annexed, Sharon Dogar

 



My thoughts: WoW! I read Nise's review some time ago, and although it's been a long time since I read Anne Franks Diary, I was drawn to this story, although it was fictional, just because... I visited Auschwitz when my mom and I visited Poland a number of years ago.  It was the most incredible experience.  It has been something I will never forget, and reading the personal accounts real or factious has been a particular interest for me.  It may seem like a most gruesome interest, but such and important time that I cannot seem to forget.
