What the Critics Say

"I have always believed in survivor's testimonies: they are unique. It is impossible to understand the Holocaust and its meaning without becoming acquainted with their experiences, which they alone can tell with true authority." (Elie Wiesel)

Inspiring Story

This is an autobiography or perhaps a better term is a memoir of the author's experiences hiding from the Nazis during WWII. The story is well written, clear and to the point. The narrator does an excellent job.
