    Wildflowers of Terezin - I recommend it

    I have to admit that I was hesitant to open the newest entry from multi-published Robert Elmer. Not because of the author, who has several adult novels and a non-fiction under his belt, and has already proven his ability to write.

    My concern was the time and place Wildflowers of Terezin. The suffering of WWII can be too graphic. But I was intrigued by the setting, Denmark. My ignorance never ceases to amaze me and here I found another aspect of it. I found knew nothing of the Danish people during WWII and Danish Jews.

    The story of Steffen and other characters revealed an epoch in the broad canvas of that terrible war.

    Word of caution, the beginning was a little dull, mostly Steffen. He couldn't seem to comprehend the evil loose in the world. I wanted to slap him. "Wake up. Don't you understand the danger?" Many people didn't understand until it was upon them. I found the character believable. But once he did see the terror approaching he acted, putting himself in danger. It was fascinating to confirm the historical facts of the bravery of the Danes in helping to save thousands of their citizens.

    A good read, I recommend it.

    A story of the German occupation of Denmark, and the round-up of the Danish Jews, who were shipped to the prison camp at Terezin, Czechoslavakia. A book that tears your heart out, but one of faith and love.

    An oh so sad but true lesson that mankind has never seemed to learn throughout the ages.

    We as a part of the human race have no right to enslave or torture any other part of the human race because of their color,creed or religion. This was an excellently written book and it hefd my interest from beginning to end.

    Excellent!

    I found this book to be a excellent work of historical fiction. I learned many things about WWII in Denmark that I never knew. I was please to discover that there were many Danes who attempted to help Jews escape the Nazi's attempt to round them up from Denmark. The characters are well developed and the book is realistic without being offensive.

    A very good war time love story between two people caught in the throws of WWII. People of different faiths working together for the same cause while discovering they are in love.

    Wonderful presentation of a heartbreaking era..

    Robert Elmer has earned my respect as a writer. I have read many fiction and non-fiction books on the hell faced by Jews, Poles, and an abundance of unprovoked martyrs while the evil raked Europe. This book opened up another territory of this to me; all the while providing the subsequent affection I am sure occurred more than we can imagine. A little bit of a Romeo/Juliet twist brought about warmth in the face of terror. Thank you Robert Elmer, look forward to reading more of you as well.

    Historically accurate

    I did a little research and found the premise of this book to be true. Amazing that "one" German that did not lose his soul to the Nazis could make such a huge difference in so many many lives.

    Well written and highly recommended.

    One well written book, and very honest with the situations in the concentration camps during WWII. Learned new things like the fleeing to Sweden and the language. The love story so exciting and pretty. Loved it truly. Couldn't stop reading. <3
