Critics about

“The little girl’s diary and her traumatic experiences in Mengele’s laboratory bring to a close a book that you read with quailing heart. A book that I would certainly not recommend to children, no matter how seductive and inspirational the main character might be. A child ‘who dreams, who loves, who knows that the solar system is wonderfully interesting, who has learned from Plato that all the things that exist are the shadows of ideas, who has felt with Antigone the terror of the Athenian system, reading Sophocles.’ A child whom the world in which she lives frightens and outrages, and who therefore invents her own world. Her true and only home.”
