I started getting the bug for WWII stories when I read a book by Corrie Ten Boom The Hiding Place as a kid. Growing up in America as a all german girl, my mom has told me stories of being a child during this horrible season in our World History. She told me once as a child her mom told her she was going to go some place special and for a whole week she was terrified they were going to take her away with all the children. She actually was going to go to a Birthday party for her best friend! Momma also told me how they would have to have all the lights out in the town and how her father and even my Dad as a kid would ride around the town to make sure everyone was inside. My great Uncles 6 all went to fight as Germans from the USA the Nazi's and all miraculously came home. I absolutely loved this book The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman set in Poland during World War II. A true story of when the Nazi's invaded Poland and took over the Zoo. Ruthless to the animals and carrying some away to create the perfect specimen. The Zookeepers hide Jewish people in the Zoo and in the cages. I couldn't put this down. I love reading the courageous stories of how people would help protect the Jewish families during WWII. A wonderful read. I highly recommend this book. I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.
