We Never Lost Hope is a must read for this summer. It is a love story that captures a piece of history we must never forget. I could not put this book down until I had consumed every page. A prisoner of the Auschwitz death camp is liberated and falls in love with an American GI.
Edith is the first War Bride to reach America and her story is riveting. But it is more than that; told from five voices, it broadens the readers experience to include a family’s experience as they endure separation, agonizing about the fates of their loved ones as the Final Solution kills millions.
I thought I knew all there was to know about the Holocaust but I was wrong. This book tells about life as they lived it before, during, and after World War II.
This is reality, this is history. Do yourself a favor, buy it, read it.
Great job Naomi Litvin!
