I read a lot about WWII; the Greman occupation of Frances and Germany in particular. Still astounded and fascinated as to how Hitler's ideology could have spread so far and deep that people were willing to watch such atrocities and turn their heads. My questions are endless. Having read as much as I have on the subject, I was pleasantly surprised by this author's unique and overall fairly uncharted territory. It's Paris under German occupation but it zooms in on a grouo of people whose earlier genocide experience is not unversally accepted as such. Armenians are barely recovered from their "great tragedy" which is the Turks younger version of genocide.nThis very small Armenian famiky, genocide survivors who found sanctuary in Paris, are again, living like hunted animals under the flowing swastikas of Paris streets. Weaving Armenian genocide survivors into WW II occupied Paris survivors is simply amazing and true!
A WW II riveting story of a family who afe not Jewish, but who nevertheless suffered senselessly and survived, yet again. I adored this books unique story line and her writing. I then looked up the other books she's written and read those as well. Highly recommend them all, especially this one.
