This is a very good book. The book just felt real the whole time I was reading it. A Jewish family in Czechoslovakia right before WWII when Hitler had his sights on the country. It was part of Hitler's liebensraum--living room. It was basically handed over before WWII by the Europeans and Chamberlain. All of this history going on while this Jewish family that was actually fairly well to do and how they were squeezed at the time. A very good book.
I am too tired right now to think about saying more, maybe I will add to this later.
