We follow the lives of Meyer and his family as the Nazi party eventually comes to power, things slowly start to change, life becomes more and more difficult for Meyer as a Jew in Berlin. Then when the knock comes at the door, we follow Meyer on a terrifying train journey to the place where so many lost their lives. Where so many innocents where murdered.
I was sent a copy of this book that I had one from Goodreads in exchange for a review, and it's one of the best I have received. This book for me, brought so many memories flooding back. When studying History at school, we went to visit a concentration camp in Berlin, and while not exactly the same as Auschwitz, it bared many of the same hallmarks, the shooting wall, the chambers where experiments where carried out, crematoriums, and similar bunks.Read more ›
A story of a Jewish lawyer sent to auswich with his family. The story is told in two sequences, one on his life before the war and leading up to his arrest, the other from his time of arrival.
He is eventually asked to help a ss officer who has been accused of murder.
The story is good, full of little twists which keep you intrigued, but it is the continual story of how mankind can sink to such depravities, and inflict such injustice on fellow human beings that keeps you reading!
It is easy to merely read what occurred at this time and have sympathy, but the author strives to allow you to imagine a normal man, and his love for his family to permeate throughout. How such innocent people were rounded up and massacred on an industrial scale, and you can't help wondering what if you had been born at the wrong place at the wrong time!
The author tells the story without deliberately trying to overdo the injustice of it all and the depravity of man, he merely tells how it was and the feelings of a normal man and let's your mind do the rest.
An excellent read, not quite on the level of schindlers list.....but not far off!!
