And the Violins Stopped Playing

And the Violins Stopped Playing - Alexander Ramati The book that got me reading historical fiction especially those of the Holocaust.

I read this 10 years ago. Suffering from lack of reading materials, I obligingly picked up Reader's Digest condensed books and chose the last story, having read the first book, Mary Higgins Clark's Remember Me. The title piqued my interest enough. I was expecting a boring read just to pass the time. I was very surprised that once I started I could not put it down. I was drawn into Roman's world. I finished this book in 2 days and still feels it resonating after all these years.
