Mischling by Affinity Konar, 344 pages
As they come off the train, Dr. Josef Mengele selects the girls for "the Zoo," the area of the camp used for his experiments.
Mischling was the legal term used in Nazi Germany to denote a person who had both "Aryan" and Jewish ancestry, but the term was never explained in the book.
There is not just death and horror in this book, there is some surviving and triumphing also. I do have to admit though, I am glad I am done with this one.
