Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would suggest it as a part of a larger set of works on the Holocaust but not as a stand-alone exemplar. The author is too credulous of Soviet sources, for example. It's understandable, given the apologist alternatives and shameful revisionism by the Lithuanians involved. But despite evidence demonstrating the lack of reliability of Soviet sources she treats the conflicting evidence as exceptions to Soviet reliability or looked to find some way to believe them anyway. It's understandable, given her apparent biases.
What about Suzanne Toren’s performance did you like?
She imparts a proper amount of emotion for the subject - it's subdued with rising and falling tones appropriate to the subject matter.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
"If you have to see one film about the Holocaust, watch Schindler's List. But if you watch two, watch We Are Here."
This author has turned this book into a story about her, not enough about the Holocaust.
