This book brought me to tears on many occasions. Pappa Murray & his granddaughter told his story and that of his family, through the most horrendous time of his life in the various concentration camps, the loss of nearly all of his family except his sister. Everyday was a fight to stay alive. The Liberation of Belsen meeting his 1st wife Felia, How he moved to America and they had three children Rochelle, Mark & Sidney. How hard it was to live day to day, Papa Murray with his wife Felia were able to buy their own business a
little grocery store, their struggle to make it work. Felia began suffering flashbacks to the awful time in the camps, paranoia, depression, she had two stays in a psychiatric hospital and her eventual death. Many years later he met another survivor who had two children, her husband died from cancer. Pappa Muray married Tosia and they are still alive, papa is also a cancer survivor. There is no self pity, just sheer determination to survive. This book has been beautifully written. Please read it you will not be disappointed, and when you crumble about your life, not being able to go somewhere or buy something remember Pappa Murray & thousands of other people. All they wanted to do was to live.

I really enjoyed this book harrowing although some of the detail was. What i did like is that it was a true life story not just dealing with the concentration camp part of his life. A great read would recommend to anyone who likes true life books, and books of hope as there is always hope in this book

It`s very sad to know that human beings can be so cruel and wicked others, but they have been, and these memories need to be shared. This book is a very sad account of what happened to a young man and his family during the horrors of the war and his life afterwards.

This book describes the Horrors of the Holocaust and how it affected the people while it was going on but also how it affected them after the war ended. - I liked the fact that the book is not only about the war but also about after the war as this is time that we don't hear about often. Most of the time we think of the horrors under the war but what about the once that happened after.

- It is a short book took me less than 2 hours to finish. But eventhough the book is short it is very well written and you really get to feel for the people.

A well written and heart wrenching book. You cannot begin to beleive what attrocities these poor people suffered, but to live and bear witness to me I think was more revenge. The sad thing is, even after the war, they have to leave for USA due to anti-semitisim still being alive and well in Germany. My heart felt for the Pappa, after everything he went through and then the problems after, such a sad time, but good he had the strength to survive and due to his survival there will be future generations

What a heart wrenching story for the fight for survival during the holocaust. A must read of a true story of just one man's detrmination to survive a hellish life at the hands of the germans in the concentration camps. Well written giving you an insight to the horrors jewish people had to endure.
