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.

I am glad you read this book. Every time I visited Gettysburg (PA USA) there was a sense of quiet and reverence walking the war grounds. Did you experience that when you visited Auschwitz? We should never forget.

I think that is pretty brave to take on as a topic but I like the idea of it. And I imagine that visit to Auschwitz must have been powerful.

I haven't read this one, but I remember seeing it around a while back. I tend to read a lot of WWII fiction, so I will probably read it at some point.

This sounds fascinating. I'd never thought about what Peter's side of things would have been.
