January 02 – Ebook Review: The Violinist of Auschwitz – Jean-Jacques Felstein

Story: I was given a copy of this book via Netgalley, for an honest review! Thank you for granting my This ebook takes us back from the present day, to back at Auschwitz-Birkenau in WWII. The story is mainly told thru the eyes of the author, and four women, Elsa, Hélène, Violette, and Anita. Felstein’s mother Elsa, got to become part of the orchestra in Birkenau. Yet she kept those years private from her family, and it took her son many years to get the story out of her. Also adding the other women, we see what a horror it was back then, but also that even beautiful music can come from the worst circumstances.

Final Notes The Violinist of Auschwitz 3.5/5

I wanted to like this book I really did, and it took everything in me to finish it because this is usually my top favorite genre of books, but the book just did not do it for me. The way it was written, and how it was written, it jumped too much and I had to keep track of who was telling the story, and what voice I was meaning to listen to, so as much as I wanted to love this book, it was not one of my favorites.
