This is a rather incoherent, unstructured first person account of (among other things) the Warsaw ghetto, Majdanek and Buchenwald. Very interesting to read, even if it was a bit frustrating with all the repetitions and total lack of editing.

A worthwhile first person account of the Holocaust

I have read some of the other reviews and I think that you have to consider this is an oral history. It is stream of consciousness.

Shock, unbelievable.

I chose my rating based on the details used by the writer. it's shocking to think how human beings could be so monstrous. I would recommend as a must read, so that it c a n expose, what happened, and hopefully never to happen again

Very Moving Account of the Holocaust

I was very taken with the account of this Polish Jew who recounted his experiences during the Holocaust without whining. The things that he saw and were done to him would surely have driven a less formidable man insane.

I wish I could

Give this man a hug. He opens his soul and offers the reader the bare harsh truth of what he experienced. Hard to read at times, yet felt honored by his truth. I can try to imagine....but know I am unable to come close to true understanding.
