Review: Making Bombs for Hitler

Making Bombs for Hitler
Making Bombs for Hitler by Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Making Bombs For Hitler” by Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch will take you into a world that you could never imagine was real. How could such cruelty to fellow human beings exist? Although, “Making Bombs for Hitler” is a fictional account of young Lida’s survival in the Nazi camps, it is based on historical facts and stories gleaned from those who actually survived those times.
As I read through the pages, I was numb. I could not even shed a tear, I was so angry at the inhumanity that was brought on by war.
We sit in a country that is peaceful, where no matter how poor we are, there is still something on our plate at mealtime that resembles actual food. The one thing that kept crossing my mind, though, as I read what Lida experienced, was, how many nine year olds today would even know how to survive such devastation. Let us pray they never have to. Let us pray that any person who picks up this book and reads it, will think twice about the glories of war, for in war, there is really no glory.
My tears finally did come, at the end, when Lida was reunited with her sister. A happy ending for a story that had to be told, but should never have happened. Well done, Marsha.
