Don't be scared off by this book starting a little slow. The 1st third of the book recounts Barbara's life and it is around page 70 before Hitler is even mentioned. I found it extremely interesting to read an account of a young Jewish woman who survives the Holocaust by basically hiding in plain sight. The book is well written and a lot of what Barbara encounters is heart-breaking. The author did a good job of including lots of details like a cast of characters at the beginning to help keep track of who everyone is, numerous pictures and even maps.
