The sheer simplicity of the horror of the Nazi terror, brutality and unbridled torture of the Jewish people during WWII has been is well documented. One Polish Man's strength to not only survive years of torment under the Nazi regime makes what could be a horror too big to comprehend into a not only readable but informative telling of day to day struggle for mere survival as a Jew during concentration camps and work camps. Why read this book? Because we must never forget what has happened in the past, and make sure it never happens again. Why else read this book? To put our own lives and struggles into perspective. While the author is still alive Just Read It! and in Oregon do hear one of his lectures.

I saw this man speak about a month ago. Seeing a tangible product of the Holocaust was so moving. I haven't yet read his book, but I'm so excited to. He told his audience that night that he did it not for the money, but to help people remember and to teach them that "prejudice doesn't make sense." One who writes out of feeling of obligation is one who is definately deserving to be heard.
