    (136)

    Trudy, a college history professor, is collecting oral histories from World War II survivors (both German and Jewish). Her mother, Anna, refuses to talk to her, but Anna's story is revealed in flashback. She conducted an affair with a Jewish baker who was summarily killed. Afterward, Anna caught the eye of a high-ranking Nazi officer.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Those Who Save Us to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read it in print.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Those Who Save Us?

    Too long to pick just one.


    What does Suzanne Toren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A great German Accent and very well written.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The recounted scenes from the holocaust camps were often disturbing and brought about a lot of emotions.


    Any additional comments?

    It is an intriguing and interesting story with a wonderful historical background. However, some of the plot lines build up very very slowly and are anticlimatic. A great historical time piece but a slow moving, sometimes boring, drama.
