Lilac Girls

Reviewed by Janet:

The daily life of Caroline, a New York socialite, would seem totally removed from that of Kasia, a Polish teenager, or Herta, on the verge of becoming a doctor in Nazi Germany.  Eventually brought together by the horrendous medical experiments conducted on prisoners at Ravensbrück, their stories of love, survival, and justice bring a tender light to the tragedies of war.  Inspired by a true story.
