Historical fiction based on a true story. Very interesting and wonderful writing, the story really draws you in.
Read this book! One of our librarians told me to read this on several occasions. I finally read it was fabulous!!!! It is the true story of Helene Hannemann. She was a German nurse married to a Gypsy musician with 5 children, including one set of twins. She voluntarily went to Auschwitz-Birkenau when her husband and children were taken, because she wouldn't let them go without her. She became a favorite nurse of Dr. Josef Mangele's. Fabulous book!
