"Hey Genyek, you're not so bad for a Jew."
The importance of this book is very significant. The viewpoint allows the reader to see how harsh and how real the Holocaust was. The reader is getting a first look onto how scary it was to have to be hidden, or else your life would be on hand. This book also shows the care and love that some people could have, taking in an illegal being for the well sake of their life. It’s truly beautiful how much a family could care for someone other than their own, someone who they’re appointed to avoid at all costs. From my personal perspective, this book made me understand what it was actually like being the illegal alien in the situation. Though there is nothing I could ever do to appease the Holocaust and it’s existence, I can personally understand just how serious and justified it was.
