Great book, which is well written and researched by author Susan Gordon. Susan Gordon documents the genealogy of both sides of her family but focuses on one relative, Eva. Eva, made sacrifice after sacrifice to help all those who she came into contact with, especially during World War Two Budapest, where she worked with the Swedish Diplomat Raoul Wallenberg in saving thousands of Jews from being murdered by the Germans and their accomplices. Through numerous interviews with Eva, Susan Gordon provides the reader with a first hand account of the plight of Hungarian Jews during The Holocaust. Additionally, Susan tracked down the German Commandant of Ghetto created in the Polish town of one of her grandparents and the reader learns this murderer was in fact, although only one of the few Germans, brought to justice. This is a great book for those interested in genealogy, the plight of Jewish immigrants to America in the early 1900's, the Jewish community of Budapest, Raoul Wallenberg, etc.
