Book Review: The Courtship of Julian and Frieda

Dr. Jessie Voigts's picture

One of the most compelling stories I've ever read is the subject of this week's Book Review. The Courtship of Julian and Frieda: A True Story, is written by Krista Perry Dunn. This is a powerful memoir of a young couple in love, parted by socioeconomic class, country of origin, war, concentration camps, the Gestapo - the Holocaust. The most amazing part? It is REAL.
