Listened to this as one of our Black Eyed Susans for the year. What I felt set this particular Holocaust memoir apart was the large amount of reflection that Leyson incorporated at every step of his story. He would tell us what he felt but also what was causing that feeling, or why it might seem strange to today's readers. He also gave a helpful accounting of why more Jews didn't flee Europe (they were basing their actions on recollections from WWI; many of them had no resources with which to leave).
