This book tells of the events that occurred in Treblinka, a camp built solely for murder and despicable acts of torture. It offers a unique perspective of what life was like to survive in a death camp, and it is a truly horrifying read.
This was very short and easily understandable. However, I had issues with the writing style. This book reads like a fact-based account (which is obviously important), but I feel that hearing how Rajchman felt during his time at Treblinka would have added a more well-rounded dimension to this book. I would also have appreciated more detail about what happened to the Germans following Rajchman's escape. Nonetheless, this was a devastating yet interesting read, and for want of a better word, I enjoyed reading it.
