Book Review of Sarah's Key

Sarah's Key
Sarah's Key
Author: Tatiana de Rosnay
Genre: Literature & Fiction
Book Type: Paperback

An unflinching look at the horrors of war and the Holocaust as perpetrated by the French Vichy government and the Parisian police force. The anti-Semitism and betrayal of the French Jewish population was a crime against humanity and an indictment of French society for its collaboration with the Nazis and its indifference to its own citizens. Could have been a 5-star read but for a slow beginning and some unevenness--predictable in places but throat-gripping in others. Probably will keep my copy and read it again.
