Children of Pithiviers by Sheila Kohler

The children's concentration camp at Pithiviers witnessed some of the most shameful episodes in the chronicles of occupied France. In 1959, during the course of a summer affair with a haughty French aristocrat, eighteen year-old Dierdre discovers the diary of two Jewish girls kept hidden from the Nazis in his chateau. As love descends into cruelty, the frank depiction of Dierdre's sexual awakening mingles warily, and finally horribly, with the discovery of evil.

Contrary to what the reviews have written about this book, very little of the plot has to do with the two hidden children. Their story is mostly a sub sub plot of the book. The main focus of the plot is mostly about the escapades of the 18 year old.
