If I offended then please accept my apology. My intention was not to say do not write the book, only to point to the importance of not taking the subject lightly. Nor do I think th Holocaust is unsuitable for fiction. If that were so then I'd be guilty myself, along with many others like Spielberg (who gets the truth wrong in one of the first captions in Schindler's List), Thomas Kinnealy, Hermann Wouk to mention just a few. All I ask is that if you write your book then do the hard work that goes with it. Sadly researching this subject will prove to be very hard on the sensibilities. I wish you well.

Thank you. I didn't expect such a big response. I have now dumped the concept as I believe it will be to big for me to tackle. The characters and prologue will remain the same but I've started a new user friendly novel. I knew the Holocaust would be very sensitive and I appreciate your feedback Smile
