It is hard for me to belive there are people in this world and even here in the USA, who deny the holocaust ever happened. This event has to be one of the worst events, humans have ever inflicted on humans. The author of this short story did a suburb job of writting about this tragic event. I do not feel as if I should say it is entertaning, because to do so seems irreverant to the deaths and suffering of so many. This book is a must read. I felt the woman's terror and pain through her nightmares, flashbacks and memories. AD

The events surrounding the story are atrocious but for some reason I felt nothing reading this. No, anger, disgust, sadness, nothing at all. Whatever the author was trying to convey just did not come across for me.

A 16 page story about a woman revisiting the concentration camp she had been in. It leaves a lasting impression on the reader.
