Somewhere There Is Still a Sun: A Memoir of the Holocaust  by Michael Gruenbaum and Todd Hasak-Lowy

Alas, another Holocaust book. Thats what everyone says when these come out. But it is important not to do that, too generalize the individual stories of everyone who survived this horrid time in our history. I have read a good amount of these books and took a break from them for a while. This is one that brought me out of that hiatus and I am glad it did. It is a look into concentration camps, but one I had not seen before. In this case, Misha was sent to the Terezin Concentration Camp, and even though he did have difficulties he had to live through, he was spared from the worst of it by his mother who was able to use his father’s reputation to keep their family safe. It was interesting to see the many different experiences that where had in the that one Concentration Camp. One thing that really stuck out to me was the humanity that was shown in then book. This made the story and its characters stay with me even after I finished reading it. This book is for historical fiction or World War II fans.
