Life Influencing, 5 Dec. 2011
It must be at least 30 years now since I read this book. Many of the details are somewhat foggy in my mind but the impression it left on me has lasted to this day and will no doubt continue to influence me. It was the first detailed account of the Holocaust I had ever read and it prompted me to learn more.
Having recently visited Auschwitz / Birkenau I was prompted to get hold of the book again as the story has become even more real to me. All I can say now is that in honour of those who died, not just Jews but gypsies opponents of the Nazis and many others, we should all resolve to oppose oppression wherever we may find it.
