Clara's War Clara Kramer & Stephen Glantz Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
“A superlative memoir of survival….Few wartime memoirs convey with such harrowing immediacy the evil of the Nazi genocide.”
—Daily Telegraph (London)
“One Girl’s Story of Survival,” Clara’s War is based on Clara Kramer’s diary of her years spent hiding in an underground bunker with seventeen other people during the Nazi occupation of Poland. In the classic vein of The Diary of Anne Frank—a heart-wrenching and inspiring story of a life lived in fear and cramped quarters—Clara’s War is a true story of the Holocaust as told by a remarkable young girl who lived to bear witness.

User reviews about this book
Amazing story of human experience
Should be mandatory reading for anyone & everyone. An amazing story of survival against almost insurmountable odds. A tribute to the incredible spirit of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances of bravery in the face of such extreme cruelty. I couldn’t stop reading until the very end. Thank you Clara for sharing your story with the world.

Whoa. Couldn’t put it down. Mesmerizing and tragic and loving.
What a book!
Wow. Remarkable. Devastating and inspiring. I fell in love with everyone!
By Bob McHenry
This was a captivating story that revealed the depravity of a society, a war without equal, and, at the same time, clearly identified the meaning of love, honor, and devotion. As an avid reader of this time period in world history I found this book so difficult to stop reading even for a moment. The tragedy of the community was so keenly captured and written about as to make the reader feel as if they were in the bunker right next to Clara. Truly ono the best books I have been fortunate enough to read. This book should be on every junior high school reading list. A truly sad story soi well told!
