This book is based on the true story of the more than 200 Jewish detainees who escaped this internment camp in October of 1945. I had not known anything about this part of WWII history and was taken aback that even after the war Jewish people were still being detained and held against their will and not even by the Nazi's but by the very people who helped "free" them, the British Allies because they didn't have papers. It focuses on the story of four women at the camp, each from very different backgrounds and experiences in the war, yet each one having suffered greatly on their road to survival. Each woman's story was heartbreaking and how they navigated through their challenges surviving the war and their time at the camp was well written. It's not a long book and at times I found it a bit choppy but it was a good read involving a piece of history that I have not heard talked about and have not read about before.
I gave it a 7.5/10
