This is an amazing book! Whilst telling the story of Dr Sieber's family and the struggles and suffering of various members of that family during the 20th century, it conveys the reality of life among the Austrian Jewish community and provides well-researched facts about the events of the times. At the same time, the main characters are portrayed in some depth and the visual descriptions and photographs bring their story to life, helping to make the book an easy - but not always comfortable - read. An engrossing book, written from a human perspective, combining compassion and wry humour. I strongly recommend it!
