Winter Journey- Diane Armstrong

 Alina is an Australian specialist who specializes in forensic dentistry and whose life is falling apart in Sydney.   She accepts a job to travel to her native Poland, where there is ano investigation underway.  In 1941 the Jewish members if a small town were herded into a local barn and burnt alive.  Locals say that it was the Germans, who did it, killing local communists.

Based on a true story the author spins a fictional start that puts a personal twist on what is truly an evil evil deed and it is pretty confronting thinking about what neighbors can do to each other.  I didn't  expect to hear about the continued prejudice and animosity that still occurred within the population, with many still blaming the Jews for what occurred to them. 4/5
