I have read a lot of books on this subject but this is the first where it is not the author is telling the story but the people that were there. It is so grafic that I am having nightmares and I am a seasoned reader on this subject
I am only half way through this book but I am completely blow away by it's content. I have read a lot of books on Auschwitz the camp and what happened inside it but this is a first for me on about life on the outside. Sybile does not hold back on what she has put on paper. What comes to mind about this book is the saying "for evil to suceed is for a few good men to do nothing"
Well first off all let me say that Olga passed away in 2001, I hope she has meant her family in Heaven may she rest in peace - she deserves it. As for the book it is a great read she does not hold back on what she experienced and you will be glued to it. But because it was written in 1946 when her memories were still fresh in her head their was one detail that she give that is now proved inaccurate, that is the number of people that came in to the camp in the first 3 months of 1944 she stated that up to 1.25 million people arrived their - that is the only point that I found wrong in the book. other than that a great read.
