Publisher's Summary

For 50 years Anna Schlemmer has refused to talk about her life in Germany during World War II. Her daughter, Trudy, was only three when she and her mother were liberated by an American soldier and went to live with him in Minnesota. Trudy's sole evidence of the past is an old photograph: a family portrait showing Anna, Trudy, and a Nazi officer, the Obersturnfuhrer of Buchenwald. Driven by the guilt of her heritage, Trudy, now a professor of German history, begins investigating the past and finally unearths the dramatic and heartbreaking truth of her mother's life.

Tried but could'nt do it

As I am from a generation that didnt have to live through this era I have always had an interest in both sides of the story. Try as I might I couldnt get into this book. I kept coming back to it hoping I was in a better frame of mind to listen but eventually I gave up.
I think the narrator was wrong- she sounded like a litlle girl and which was off-putting as well as very irritating. It got to the point where i didnt care what happened anymore !! which is quite disturbing as it sounded like a story that needed to be told.
I will just have to rely on reviews and hopefully be able to work out what happened.
