Whatever I say bout this book I don't think will come close to covering it. A holocaust memoir, that is less about heroes and villains and drama and tragedy, and more about the will to survive. The detached style of the writing and the grey morality of some of the characters in the camp, including, at moments, the narrator, just point up the siege mentality, and the desperate nature of the situation - how one must ruthlessly put ones own well being first in a fight through every day, or shut down the bigger reality of the situation, in order to survive.
