I finished this book on my birthday at the Tunnel Beach in Holland, MI. I am glad the sun was shining as there were some truly dark parts to this book. It is a true story of one Holoaust survivors experiences before, during and after being in the Nazi work camps of World War II. As with many stories from survivors, Millie shares the horrors that she witnessed and lived through but she does it with an authenticity that touched me deeply. She tells her story from her perspective and often questions whether others around her witnessed these events the same way. She tells the reader why she has no faith in God and the things that led up to her decision to leave faith behind her. She expresses her bewilderment at the treatment and psychological torture the Nazi's imposed on their prisoners and how over and over it made no sense to her. I admire her courage to share her story and tell it in her own way and in her own words. This isn't like reading Eli Wiesel and his poetry or Corrie TenBaum and her inspirational "finding hope in the ashes" but it is worth reading and always worth remembering...lest we ever forget
