Destined To Live: A True Story Of A Child In The Holocaust by Ruth Gruener What would you do if your whole life was shattered, and you were forced into hiding? This gripping, poignant memoir about coming of age during The Holocaust.
The Best of World War II: Priscilla: The Hidden Life of an Englishwoman in Wartime France. This isn't your typical Occupied France book - Priscilla was not in the Resistance and she was not actively participating against the Germans. What she did do may shock you. An absolute must read for those interested in this aspect of WW2 history.
THE COMING OF THE THIRD REICH: Richard J. Evans: This is the first of a three-part series on the Nazis and their horrible legacy. It's not easy reading, but then again why should it be. If I were able to, I'd make these books required reading for everyone. History is THE most important lesson for all us in this increasingly complex world. The MOST impt. story of the 20th Century.
