The background stories of the rise of Hitler and his attacks on the Jews throughout Europe gives excellent testimony to the times. Many of the Jews lived in their countries fully assimilated in multi-cultural societies. I marvel at how quickly these civilizations fell apart and/or were broken. That alone is an example of the fragility of civilization and the human peace treaties. Trust in God not governments is the moral.
I have a keen interest in this subject as my mother is English and she lived through the German air attacks near London. I also have relatives who were Jewish and did not make it out of Romania alive. My father was in General Eisenhower's command, Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force, and was with him when he freed one of the German concentration camps. But he would never talk about it. This book brought those days alive for me.
