The Violin's Secret is not a revisionist's view of history. I once took a class in which the students believed that only six million Jews died at the hands of Hitler and his henchmen. Yes, six million did die because Satan wanted to wipe them from the face of the earth. But Hitler also killed five million other undesirables: Catholics who hid Jews; Christians who protested too much the regime; political prisoners who didn't fit the Party ideals; and Poles, Russians and other Slavic races that Hitler didn't care about under the Aryan mythology. This story takes a young boy who believes that his family is in trouble because of his mouthing off at the Hitler Youth leader. His guilt is deep as he survives the great atrocities committed in the 20th century of sixty million deaths during World War Two that is turning 75 years old.
