She has hair of ginger and lovely green eyes, and she has just been transported with her family from Terez+n to Auschwitz. In short order, her father commits suicide, and her mother and younger brother are dispatched to the gas chambers, but young Hanka Kaudersov+, working for Dr. Krueger, is still alive. Faced with the choice of death or working in a German military brothel on the eastern front, she chooses life, and passes as an Aryan. Hanka fights cold and hunger, fear and shame, sustained by her loathing of the men who visit her and by a fierce desire to live. This remarkable novel soars beyond nightmare to leave the reader with a transcendent sense of hope.

What's an old man doing writing about a young woman? Dull, lifeless, weak characters and storytelling.

What I enjoyed about this book was a glimpse of how a person who has been through a war, genocide, and personal brutal abuse can begin to live a normal life again. That is quite remarkable.
