    Wonderful History Novel

    Very much enjoyed reading this book, however, since I knew the ending, I stopped about 3/4 through.

    If you are a history buff I would recommend this read.

    I thought this book was very well done. I had never heard of this event before in history and found it extremely disturbing.

    Good read, still relevant

    Well written: intelligent, but accessible. Almost 40 years after publication, still compelling - because the story is so tragically timeless. Nicely dry in describing corrupt officials and their behavior, but leaving inescapable conclusions. With genocide still at work in the world, how does your immigration policy look? Painfully but easily identifiable is the anti-semitism of '40's America, even up to FDR.
