    Story
    "A different view of WW2"

    Most WW2 books focus on the Jews trials and extermination, but this diary of a young Hungarian Jew shows that many Jews survived in relatively normal circumstances despite change of lifestyle. War is never good and is such a shame for everyone involved. She mentions that life for the Jews in Munich, post WW2, was better for the Jews than for others. This diary starts before the war and ends with the young woman traveling to America to start again. While this book reads like a diary and doesn't have any nail biting, high adventure scenes, it is interesting to hear a real-life perspective of how other Jews survived the war. The reader has a lovely voice. She speaks with an American accent. The diary does say that the young girl speaks English perfectly, so I guess it works.

    Story
    "oh dear what can the matter be?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    if it had been less about her and more about the war


    What was most disappointing about Madelaine D. Lang’s story?

    It was so full of teenage self pity I wondered why she even bothered to translate it


    What didn’t you like about Sandra Kaye’s performance?

    She was too close to the microphone and always sounded breathless


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    She was just a poor little rich girl deprived of all her precious priveleges by a rather silly war. She needed to remember there were Jews worse off than herself and to stop wallowing in stupid teenage self pity.
