I have been reading a book by that name, the story of a Hungarian Jewish dwarf sibling performing group sent to Auschwitz (can't be too many people that fit that category...). Whereas You Can't Go Home Again, by Thomas Wolfe, is an exquisitely well-written book with a plot I find not interesting at all (but I keep coming back to, because it's so well-written), this book is poorly written, with repetitive adjectives, poor use of semi-chronological flow, and somewhat too much editorializing for a history book, but has a fascinating subject matter. I'm generally willing to pick up any WWII books (German / Jewish subject or not) I see at Half Price -- Hitler's Willing Executioners is next on my reading list -- and am not overly picky as to the content; I'll read nearly anything. There are many interesting parts in this book, aside from the story of the family itself. I'd never heard the criticism of Israel's use of Holocaust reparations money to purchase military equipment rather than give direct aid to concentration camp survivors, for example. It did take on a certain tone towards the end, however, a tone I've come across before: everyone is against us, Europe's against us, Israel's against us, nobody gives us enough attention, Holocaust museums are exploiting people's pain, getting to (21st century) Auschwitz by train is wrong, eating there is wrong, talking there is wrong, buying books about it is wrong (this in a book about it), but tearing down the buildings is also wrong, not telling people about it is wrong... in short, nothing that has been done about Auschwitz / Holocaust memorials has been done right, but we have no suggestions for improvement. (Similarly, one fellow in PBS's Auschwitz panel last spring who said it was wrong to say there were any lessons to be learned from the Shoah, because that would be getting something good out of it. The rest of the panelists disagreed with him, though, saying you kind of do need to be able to learn from the past.) I suppose I just prefer constructive people to destructive ones, who provide complaints with no suggestions.
In all, an interesting book; I just wish someone else had written it!
