This was such a great book. I work Abe's grand-daughter and this book was given to me as a christmas gift. It was an inspiring story or survival.

This was an awesome story of survival and struggle through hardship. I live in the hometown where he lived. His son actually came to my middle school and talked to us about his father. It's a must read to those who don't understand the holocaust. (Parents: it is very graphic, but the truth can be ugly).

Recommends it for: history lovers
This book was heartbreakingly beautiful. The account of one man's struggle to live through 5 completely horrifying years as a Jew from Poland. His story was uplifting and humbling. Although a quick read, sometimes hard to get through.

If you haven't read this one but enjoyed Night then you should read this. It was cool to read because I actually got to met joey Korn in Augusta when I was at school there.
