My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So what's the big deal with World War?
We don't really and exactly understand and feel these survivors feelings. What they had gone through. Even through writing their experiences, we somehow cannot fathom why and how that could happen. Such cruelty. So gruesome. All humanity was stripped from the soldier whom abide by the leader's law.
So many things that we are now could not discover the truth. A child and toddler to undergo such traumatic events, i wonder how they grow up to be? Would they able to sleep in the night? For while reading this book, i had nightmares.
Living inside this little girl's, Hanneli, becoming a woman under such circumstance, I am scared to think of another war to happen. People could be cruel in the desperate situation. We excessively have foods, they sometime eat no more, for days. We live in comfortable and luxurious house, they searching and looking for a single hygiene blanket to warm them through the day and night.
Yet, we are ungrateful being. Looking for more and forgotten about the needy that live next to ours. Forgotten how world used to be.
Don't want to live in that era, but it is enough to make me contemplate and appreciate what i have now.
