"Two Hearts and Heartbreak"
Dr. Mengele's torturing physically and mentally twins,especially ones with Aryan features. The effects and affects of Auschwitz horrors and its characters are explored. The author's amazing use of vocabulary and description is evident. The premise of hope and promise during this history's can be seen.

A Sad and Difficult Story
Twist on a WWII theme. This book spoke to the Holocaust in 1944 and the imprisoning of twins, triplets and children with unusual defects into the pet project of Josef Mengele - Mengeles Zoo at Auschwitz. It focuses on one set of twins, Pearl and Sasha. How they survived, their friends, the differing experiments they were subjected to, the medical staff in Auschwitz, their eventual liberation and the events that followed.

The story was told in alternating chapters by Pearl and Sasha. You know going in that this book will be sad, heartbreaking, and at times very hard to read. It was all that and more. Not a lot has been written about Mengeles experiments in fiction form. This book does a good job of telling a sad and difficult story.
