Awful, irresponsible book. So much is so unbelievable! Some of the scenes were written as if the characters were at summer camp with guns, not in a concentration camp. How many times did Lale sneak out of his room? How many times were the SS looking away? He was able to sneak jewelry and precious gems into his room? The women were able to chat, gossip, and giggle?! I am baffled that this was published. It’s atrocious and irresponsible.
