    Story

    Following the success of Forgotten Voices of the Great War, the series now chronicles one of human histories darkest hours. The author comes to the project following her significant work in recording the experiences of Holocaust survivors for the Imperial War Museum sound archive, one of the most important archives of its kind in the world. The intertwined moving and revealing interviews reveal the sheer complexity and horror of the Holocaust.

    Sean says: "A bit short, but very compelling"
    "A Little Disappointed"
    Overall

    These narratives are mostly about life after the Holocaust. I was hoping for more personal stories about survival during the turmoil. Bless these folk regardless!

    This is a powerful story that I will listen to again and again. The narration is fabulous. I hope a follow-up of Mende's life will be written.

    I loved Tatiana's "Sarah's Key" and hoped that I would love this book too. Unfortunately I it's a long, drawn out story that did not hold my attention.
