My Mother's Nightmare

A Holocaust Diary

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


We've all heard horror stories of war and suffering. We cannot imagine living through the terrible conditions and fearing for our lives in our own homes. But that is just what brave young Sophia De Vries had to do in war-torn Holland in the 1940's.
At the age of twenty-one, Sophia De Vries, desiring to free herself from her parents' strict rules and to become a teacher, left her village of Meppel in Holland, bound for The Hague. Just a few short years later, Hitler and the Holocaust changed Sophia's life forever. My Mother's Nightmare, taken directly from Sophia's diary and published posthumously by her daughter, is her story of how she survived and eventually made her way to America to start over.

Customer Reviews


This book contains only 57 pages. It is not worth the $9.95 it cost. The story is interesting, but it's not in depth.

Wish there was more

This story, while moving, was only a short extremely condensed version of what her experiences must have truly been. I am not sure charging this much for a book that felt like cliff notes was worth it. I did not feel a strong emotional connection with the author because of the reasons above and unlike the nazi wife there was not enough character development to really become enthralled.
