Book of the week

"Cilka's Journey" by Heather Morris (fiction). Cilka is just 16 when she is taken to Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in 1942, where the commandant immediately notices how beautiful she is.

Forcibly separated from the other women prisoners, Cilka learns quickly that power, even unwillingly taken, equals survival. When the war is over and the camp is liberated, freedom is not granted to Cilka -- she is charged as a collaborator for sleeping with the enemy and sent to a Siberian prison camp.

But did she really have a choice?

And where do the lines of morality lie for Cilka, who was sent to Auschwitz when she was still a child?
