really liked it

I thought it was a book based on fiction, until I got to the end. Lale was real, Gitta was real. I wanted to write that this book describes the journey of two young people who met and fell in love in a concentration camp, but the truth is this was not a journey. It was a life-altering experience, one I wish nobody would never have to go through in this day and age.
Lale is a young man from Slovakia who gets deported to Berchenau. He survived due to his soft skills, lack of silly ego and a strong will to survive. He meets Gitta who becomes his main reason to live.
The Nazi and the communists were equally cruel, and I really hope books like this are read by young people who still don't understand that hatred and nationalism is a sure path to destruction. This book could serve as an emotional and hard lesson for some :)
