    Anya Savikin lived among well-to-do Russian Jews in Poland, in a world more like Tolstoy's than our own, until the first bombing of Warsaw and the chaos that ensued. Her story incarnates the strength and love of Eastern European Jewry, before and after their decimation.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Anya to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version of this story.


    What other book might you compare Anya to and why?

    I have just finished another book called the Storyteller which was similar in that it talked about Nazi Germany and the atrocities involving the Jews. Neither was based on a true story but both books were very believable.


    Which character – as performed by Kathe Mazur – was your favorite?

    My favorite character was Ninka, the little Jewish girl, in the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The book is very long and could not be listened to in one sitting.
