This is a young adult book, but that really doesn't matter. The bombing raid in the back of the book is well written and gives you a very good idea of what going through one might have been like. When she was hiding from the Russians to keep from being raped, she only tells you what she heard, which lets your imagination run wild.
Well written. Highly recommended.
As an adult she writes her memoir. Did the girl, Ilse, understand? Or does Ilse, the mature woman,understand the events which effected her existance? Does the passge of time give us a clearer vision?
My students look at Ilse's life and writing this way. Ilse Koehn's book makes them think. Ilse's writing helps many students find understanding.
