It is 1963 and life is on the up and up for twenty-four-year-old Eva Bruhns. But when she is appointed as a translator at the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trials, she is abruptly exposed to Germany's war history, calling into question everything she thinks she knows about her country, her family and herself.

Unique in its perspective, this is a compelling coming-of-age story with a courageous and memorable heroine intent on confronting the truth.

All of the group enjoyed reading the book. We thought it was interesting to view Auschwitz from a young German perspective. We all felt there were too many unexplained situations and unfinished storylines however.

The group enjoyed the book, some of the readers didn't know of such atrocities and the court cases. At the beginning we all thought it was another war story, but we were very surprised and enjoyed the read.
