Lilac Girls, Martha Hall Kelly
by Kate Hareng
The reality of the hideousness and cruelty of Nazi Germany is ever present, the huge numbers of people of all nationalities and backgrounds who were slaughtered or who survived broken a testament to the madness of it all. The attitude and actions of Gerda , the German doctor, remind us how Hitler brainwashed an entire nation to believe that what they were doing was right!
At times, I felt that the author didn’t really follow up enough emotionally on the enormous and heart breaking events that she recounts, real life horror stories; experimentation, starvation…..but maybe that made for easier reading.
I really enjoyed this book, and definitely recommend, particularly for those who enjoy history mixed in with fiction.
