On My Bedside Table

One of the most well written books I've read in a long time. I can't get enough of books about World War II and the Holocaust. I've often thought if I ever go back to school of getting a degree in history, with an emphasis on WWI and WWII. I'm about half way through this book and it is so beautifully written with many, many first hand quotes and remembrances.

I just picked up "Survivors: True Stories of Children in the Holocaust" by Allan Zullo and Mara Bowvsun. Have you read it?

I love these sorts of books too. I read one in high school called "Treblinka" that was both hopeful and devastating. Did you know that the detainees there lead a revolt against the guards? Very inspiring.
