Review: THE JOURNAL OF HELENE BERR by Helene Berr

Jeannette of A Comfy Chair and a Good Book chose The Journal of Helene Berr by Helene Berr for the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s an excerpt from her review:

Helene began keeping her journal in 1942 and kept writing in it, with a few breaks along the way, until she and her parents were deported in 1944. After spending time at Auschwitz Helene was transferred to Bergan-Belsen where she died, just 5 days before the camp was liberated, after being brutally beaten. Her journal is a vivid eyewitness account detailing many of the acts of persecution perpetrated against the Jews living in France under Nazi rule.
