beauty in words…

An absolutely amazing story.

I love to read.  I have read some truly wonderful stories over the past few years, and several of them have related to the holocaust.  A topic that I have found fascinating for the last 12 years.  It’s a fascination of the main things that everyone relates to this horrific event, but for me it’s a bit more.  One of the main characters and I share the same borderline obsession… it’s a simple question really, “how can so many people not know?”  I have been studying the events that took place and that surrounded the holocaust for years and it has always been my goal to pass the information along and to see that other people in my generation, a generation born long after Hitler’s evil reign, understand, appreciate and feel the stories that exist.  Anyway, back to the book.  It’s a story that takes place in 1942 and 2001 in Paris.  It surrounds the Vel’ d’Hiv roundup which few people know anything about.  Even with all of my research I hate to admit that I knew nothing of these two tragic days.  It’s history, love, family, and perseverance all tied up in a perfect little package that I recommend all of you add to your reading list!
