    "I read this book hesitantly. It just hits too close to home with the climate of the U.S. right now. I think I would have enjoyed this more 10 years ago, or even just a couple years ago, before the 2016 election. Now it just reads like dystopian horror to me. That said, it is intriguing. Writer could use a good editor though. "

    "Ever since i first learned about the Holocaust, I doused myself into the personal accounts of any survivors who had written about their lives in the Holocaust. Thus, I have come to the conclusion that almost all books pertaining to the Holocaust are good, especially personal accounts! In this case, it's hard to truly write of how good a book pertaining to the Holocaust may be. Yes, one can comment upon the grammar used, but other than that, how am I to criticize how their journey was? I have not read this particular diary, but now that I am aware of its existence I hope to read it soon. "
