Teaser Tuesday and Where Are You? 10-13-09: Life and Fate

Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read (without spoilers, of course) to entice you to read the book.

This week my teaser is from Life and Fate by Vasily Grossman page 231:
Nearly everyone believed that good would triumph, that honest men, who hadn't hesitated to sacrifice their lives, would be able to build a good and just life. This faith was all the more touching in that these men thought that they themselves would be unlikely to survive until the end of the war; indeed, they felt astonished each evening to have survived one more day.

It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.

I'm in Russia; it's 1942 and I'm alternately in a German concentration camp, a Russian labour camp, Kazan, Stalingrad, on a cattle car bound for the gas chamber and a tank corps in the Urals. Life is not easy for any of us.
