Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7-12-- A well-organized, straightforward account of the history of the Berlin Wall and its deleterious effects upon the lives of Germans east and west. The text is chronological and provides necessary background information that commences with describing Germany between the world wars and moves on through World War II and the postwar period. Epler's coverage doesn't stop with the opening of the ``Wall of Shame'' and its subsequent destruction but goes on to discuss German reunification and prospects for the future. Her text draws heavily from Facts on File , newspaper and magazine sources, as well as a number of books, and makes judicious use of quotations and anecdotes that bring the presentation to life. Black-and-white photographs and a lengthy chronology and bibliography are included, helping to make this an excellent choice for libraries needing to update their holdings on German history. --David A. Lindsey, Lakewood Junior/Senior High School, WA
