This book was read for the Jewish Literature Challenge a few months ago.

This is a stranger story of the Nazi’s and the Holocaust. The book starts off explaining the different seasons, mentioning how winter is not death, just renewal but if the Nazi’s set fire to the forest, then animals would die and only a few would be survivors. A strange analogy.

Also in the book it calls the Nazi’s evil. Some people would have no problem with that but others would so that’s why I’m mentioning it, so each person can make the decision themselves.
