Reading this book is a great way of understanding the true horror of life in the concentration camps, of the evil of some people, and of the sheer will to survive of others. Although you can learn about concentration camps in other ways, this is surely the best way to really sympathise with the Jews point of view, and the harsh, inhumane conditions they faced. You have to keep reminding yourself that this all did actually happen, that every time you read an inmate being shot, that it was a real person, who really died at the hands of the Nazis. For anybody interested in getting a real-life perspective to concentration camp life, this is definitely the book to choose.
I found it very interesting & a compelling read from start to finish.
Be prepared to shed a few tears!
However it hooked me and I ended up sitting in my study well into the evening until I'd finished it. The authors prose is truly compelling, he breathes life into the pages of this book, his timing is impecable, the readers interest never falters.
