Goodbye Darkness just couldn't keep my interest. Not enough history, but more of a first person account of him revisiting an old battlefield and telling the reader what he was seeing right then. Those stories were interspersed with bits of history.

Anyhow, I picked up "What we Knew" by Eric Johnson. It's a very deep, oral history of the Holocaust from concentration camp Jews, escaped Jews, German civilians, and German military personal. Needless to say, it's heartbreaking.

My kids at school asked to watch the movie "Boy in the Striped Pajamas" after they finished their AP exam. I told them no. Just too much at the moment I suppose.
