This is a long, roundabout way of explaining “Enemy at the Gate” novella from The Darkest Hour anthology.
When I was 10 years old, we moved into a home next to an old lady (what I assumed was old…everyone was old to my 10 year old eyes). The woman would become my adopted grandmother. She was an Auschwitz survivor and I spent quite some time with her after school. At 14 years of age, she gave me my first Holocaust novel because I didn’t have a clue what the Holocaust was. The book is called “I Am Rosemarie” by Marietta D. Moskin. It changed my view of the world and increased my desire to find out all that I can. As it happened when I was 14 we went on a trip to Greece and I met my grandfather. We spent the afternoons on his rooftop with the homing pigeons and his stories of the German / Italian occupation of his town. He told me stories of the Greek Resistance and how he took part.
Stories involving strong female Greek Resistance members.
