This book is so sad and, at same time, so pretty. Isn't only a historical romance, but also a tale of human nature. I'm specially fond of books that tells the history of WWII on the German side and show all the guilt and pain of the next generations when dealing with the Nazism. In certain way, this book is a form of show the sentiment of one nation through the eyes of the narrator. And this is one of strongest points of it. Also, the fact it analyses the legal, moral and philosophic aspects of the facts make the history even more interesting and human.
