03 Feb The Women in the Castle
by Jessica Shattuck
This beautifully written book examines World War II and the Holocaust in a way that has rarely been seen before: from the point of view of German women. The realization of what is going on in their country and the world, and what is to be done about that knowledge. The research that Shattuck has done is impeccable. It’s a perfect choice for a book club as there is much to discuss and debate. Would history be different if women had made the choices?
