If you've ever been curious about the Holocaust and wanted to know more about what actually happened and the effects it left on survivors then this is the book for you.  Jeannette Katzir brings you smack dab in the middle of it with Broken Birds: The Story of my Momila.

I can't say enough about this book.  Katzir did such a fantastic job you feel the emotions from the beginning to the very end.

Channa and Nathan were caught in the middle of Hitler's Reign.  Fighting to survive,  they found each other.  Though they loved each other and made it through some horrific times,  surviving did not come without costs.

We are taken into the Holocaust,  from Channa being on the run from Nazi soldiers to Nathan enduring concentration camps.  This was so heart wrenching you had no choice but to want to save them yourself.

After Channa and Nathan marry,  they have five children.  Though the effects of the war are still imminent in their lives,  they try to provide a loving home for their children. 

We see these kids grow up,  we see emotional conflict,  and the worst is the sibling rivalry.  I felt bad for two of the children,  as they felt that they deserved everything without working for it. 

It was amazing to me how Channa loved her children yet tried to control every aspect of their lives even after they were grown.  Nathan always remained quiet,  and took things in stride.  Even after Channa departs from this world,  her way of life still seemed to hold strong.

I have never read a book such as Broken Birds.  I've always been curious as to what happened during this time and I will tell you that no history will ever have you feel the effects of war like this book.  Katzir did a fantastic job with detail,  drawing you in so deeply you had no choice but to feel.  I highly recommend Broken Birds to get a real taste for what actually happened,  the effects after and how that extends to the families.

As a child of Holocaust survivors, Jeannette Katzir’s life has been a study of the lasting effects of war.  Inspired  by her own family experiences, Katzir has dedicated years to in-depth research of the impact of World War II on survivors and their children.  She currently resides in the Los Angeles area , not far from her two children and grandson, with her husband.
