To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Debbie Levy's mother is the girl in this true story who, in the tradition of German girls in the 1930's, had a memory book in which she collected poems, wishes, and autographs of her classmates and family in the memorable year of 1938. Because of terrible events fast unfolding for Jews, Debbie's mother and family barely escaped from Germany hours before they would have been rounded up by the Gestapo. Debbie's mother kept her memory book all through the years and it is amplified with photos as well as a follow-up years later when she was able to be reunited with some of her friends who survived World War II. This is History in action.... girls of today will find that girls back in the 1930's would still have so much in common with one another.....this is a real way to understand History from a unique perspective.
Very interesting and enjoyable in the words of a young lady; also sad as not all will survive the war. The maturity of these Jewish children under duress amazed me. Would we, could we as spoiled Americans do as well?
