Book #10 Sarah's Key

This is the second book I have read from the period of World War II, more specifically the Holocaust. This one was a little different in that this centered around the Jews from France who were taken to Auschwitz, and as for many, where taken to their death.

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay revolves around two stories. One was of today, of a woman who is researching the story of the French Jews who were captured during the regime of Hitler and the Nazis to share this little known part of the World War. The second was of Sarah, who is a young girl, who has been captured and taken to a concentration camp and lives with the fact she has hidden her little brother back in a "safe place" at home, knowing she will return to him where all will be safe and sound. Of course, that is not to be.

There the stories and then they converge into one story in where they connect. Little did the woman who was researching would find how she was connected to this story that happened 60 years ago.  How it connects is for you to find out in this captivating story.
