“The Book Thief” – Surviving the Holocaust
I’ve just finished reading “The Book Thief”. It’s a long tale of a young girl in her early teens, living near Berlin during the second world war. It’s a tale of being strong despite the losses around her. It’s a tale of being true to what is good, and what is loving. Above all, as I closed the book after reading the last page, it’s a tale of the amazing courage that humans have, seen through the eyes of a most unusual narrator.
Despite the subject I found it very uplifting.
