    I felt the same - but could you honestly say you "enjoyed" it?
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    No. I can't see how anyone could enjoy it really, but it's a story that needs telling and it's told incredibly well. It's been a long time since I've finished a book in just a few hours but I couldn't put it down.

    I agree. It needed to be told. The facts that needed to get out there that no one would have thought about - I know there were things I didn't know etc...

    *** WARNING details of a program about Auschwitz ***

    The was a program about it on BBC4 (I think) can't remember the name it was about descendents of those high up in the Nazi party. Rudolf Hoss was the commandant of Auschwitz and him, his wife and family lived in a villa next to the camp. Hoss would put his uniform on, put his cap on, stick a pistol in his belt then kiss his wife and kids goodbye and go through a gate into the camp and murder a few thousand people as though it was just another day at the office. The kids used to collect strawberries from the villa grounds and granny use to say wash the ash of them before you eat them. This descendant of Hoss had a picture of his father as a little boy looking through the gate little knowing what went on the other side. A descendant of Hoss and a descendant of one of the survivors went to Auschwitz and stood by this gate then went through it in to the camp and discussed how they both felt. Basically it was how the descendants of these evil Nazis coped with what their forebearers did.
