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.

Some great books about World War Two Good Books Lately: Juliet, Czechs and the Saddest Book Ever

Attributed to the staircase to the Reading Room at the Magic House (children's museum), St. Louis. I'm not picky, though--they've done a great job repurposing the Victorian mansion, so I'd totally just take the whole house. All those kids would have to go, though. Too messy. ;-)
