did not like it
bookshelves: did-not-finish, mediocre, not-worthwhile

I did not get too far with this book only reaching page page 52 before I stopped. The author is a rabbi in Israel and he is descended from thirty-seven generations of rabbis on both sides of his family. Most of them were killed in the Holocaust but the author is a survivor. I thought that most of the book was going to be about his experience in the camps and how he did survive but that is only a very small part of the book. I found the writing to be plodding and loaded with name-dropping.
