My mother lived through the German occupation as a little girl in Hungary. She has many quirks, fears and nerausies that never made any sense to me until I read this book. It was as though I was experiencing the endless suffering with the books characters followed by brief periods of hope for better times followed by more suffering and the continuing deteriation of the human condition year and year after year. Yet, I couldn't stop listening and continued to keep the hope alive myself as this author seemed to capture the essence of what it must have been like to live through such a horrible period in history. I must thank the author for helping me to understand this piece of my families history while apologize to my mother for never really understanding what she went through. Sorry mom!
