50. Anything else you'd like to know?
hmmm....lots of things....but right now the one thing I want to know is why some people write false books about terrible things that really happened as if they were true, but when it comes out the book is fake that takes away from the reality of the bad things?

I read 'Fragments' by Binjamin Wilkomirski the other night-found it in a thrift store-it made me sick w the depravity of the Nazis-but at least hopeful that this child, like many others, made it through to learn how to live outside the camps--then I found out the whole thing is fake. Now this book detracts from the reality of the death camps, which all too many people already scoff at and say they never existed--which is almost as bad as the crimes committed in those death camps.....
