Gnomes and Yellow Stars (Friedrich – A Book Review)

You start the book with a garden gnome named Polycarp that is seemingly happy and end with the same Gnome, destroyed by terror...this novel brings you up close with a Jewish family that experienced the Holocaust firsthand from discrimination to being collected up and deported...Anne Frank is compelling and Friedrich stands right beside it, telling a strong tale of another child during one of the darkest times in history.
