Between Shades of Gray is a haunting and beautiful book about a time in history unknown to many people. This is a story based on the author's own family history; about Stalin's own genocide during World War II. While the Nazis were rounding up Jews and putting them into concentration camps, Stalin was secretly doing the same to the people in Lithuania and many other Balkan countries. It is a story of great loss and suffering, and the subject is grim, but it also a story about perseverance, compassion, family, and loyalty. The historical information in this book is informative but never boring, and it is a gripping read.
