Review: Friedrich

User Review  - Hiina Shiota - Goodreads

I think that it was a good book. I got to know how the Jewish people were discriminated by the Nazis and Germans. I thought that it was a very sad story, too. I would like to recommend to anyone who are learning about the Holocaust. Read full review
