Friday Finds: Silence Not, a love story by Cynthia L. Cooper

SILENCE NOT, A LOVE STORY by Cynthia L. Cooper

During an economic crisis in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s, an idealistic young Jewish woman involved in the labor movement in Hamburg joins with a rebellious artisan to resist the rise of Nazism, at the same time deepening their love for humanity and each other.

Drawn from the true stories of Gisa Peiper and Paul Konopka, this is a story of courage and love that thrives despite the dangers, telling of hope and art of, of speaking out for the highest human values in the most pressing times.

This sounds like a great book. I think it would be interesting to read some books that take place during the rise of the Nazis. I think this period of time is just as important so people get a glimpse at the actions that led up to WWII.
