A Train In Winter: An Extraordinary Story Of Women, Friendship And Survival In World War Two
"A Train in Winter" is a biography of French women, many of them part of the Resistance Movement,who were sent to Nazi death camps during the German occupation of France during WWII. The desire to tell the world of the brutality endured there was, in large part, the reason that they fought to survive. By no means uplifting, but by all means enlightening and challenging. More poignant to me after recently visiting The National Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.
The reason why i chose this was because we as a group was thinking about making our magazine interactive and visually pleasing to the eyes. I came across this Boo Book and i thought about implementing sections where things could fold out etc to make it more appealing to the audience.
