Through My Eyes differs from other books about the Third Reich and World War II because it does not simply enumerate political and military data. Rather, it meticulously weaves a young girl's memories of family life together with factual accounts into a compelling historical document. Therefore, the reader is afforded a unique view into the Third Reich and into the life of a young girl whose courage, humor, and independent spirit enabled her to survive in Hitler's Berlin. Through My Eyes is an invaluable resource for students of history, women's studies, and others to enrich their understanding of this extraordinary time.
