Rereading a book I read probably 40 years back, A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.

I have just read a book by Sandi Toksvig, about her fathers experiences during the Nazi occupation of Denmark. Quite harrowing in parts...it shows the absolute depravity of some human beings, but also how others are willing to risk their lives to help strangers.
I think this book should be on the school curriculum. There are so many who know nothing about the war in Europe, it should be part of the education of our young people.
