Hana is a well-known violinist in the heart of Vienna. She has it all: the beauty, the confidence, the friends and family, the talents, and admirers. When the Nazi government takes control, her Jewish heritage is defied and looked down upon. Everything changes. And running can only get you so far... 

Fleeing the country, experiencing resentment, hiding from the SS, facing betrayal, death, deportation, heartbreak, and enduring life in a concentration camp, she loses everything.

 In these series of events, she encounters sporadic traces of an SS Commandant she barely remembers. Her mind tells her that something is hidden beneath the surface, but her heart tells her otherwise. It is forbidden. Secrets have been hidden, but they ascend from their burials. Will she do the unthinkable for the sake of survival or true love? 

Take a journey in the shoes of an average Jewish girl in 1938 all the way to a broken grown woman in 1945. From the radiant streets of Vienna, to the monstrosity of the ghettos, to the concealed wanders of the forest, to the horrors of the extermination camps; experience the terrors that millions of innocent people were forced to face and endure because of hatred. 

Never ever forget.

There is hope in the darkness.

I love this so far. I'm Jewish, and it's extremely hard to find a book with a Jewish character, but much less a book that actually talks about our history. You're an amazing writer and the descriptions are out of this world. I can't wait to continue :)

This is a surprising simplification made by the narrator -- interesting
Wow that was very well written, almost as if you were actual survivor. Wow, you're talented!!!

Wouldn't hope help bring about happiness? Perhaps you meant to write unhappiness.
