Years ago I worked with Giora. I knew some of his background but not the whole story. Recently a friend mentioned the book. I couldn't put it down. Fascinating. At times heartbreaking. Such and honest portrayal of captive and captor. Read it.

An honest book about survival, about the will to come back home and to the top, and about resilience in spite of fear.
