Books Info:

Days in the History of Silence free pdf Eva and Simon have spent most of their adult lives together. Yet what binds them together isn't only affection and solidarity, but also the painful facts of their respective histories, which they keep hidden even from their own children.

Lindstrom has crafted a masterpiece about the grave mistakes people make when they misjudge the legacy of war, common prejudices and their own strategies of survival.
