What did you love best about Our Crime Was Being Jewish?
This may be one of the most informative books I have ever read about Holocaust survivors. It terrifies, it invokes empathy,it enlists great respect for the plight of the Jewish people and it is compelling. I have read hundreds of books about the Holocaust and the Nazis, but this shed even more light on the atrocities committed against the Jewish people of Europe and those who helped them.
What did you like best about this story?
It is not a story but a series of brief interviews with survivors; a recollection of events that marked their lives during WWII. The courage of these survivors and liberators is beyond imagination. For Holocaust deniers, this is a MUST read.
What does Malk Williams and Fenella Fudge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Their complete immersion into reading the personal horrors of the survivors. The feeling that they put into the reading makes you feel as though you are listening to the actual people tell their rememberances.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. You could never digest this in one sitting. It is a book I will listen to more than once.
Any additional comments?
I have such deep feelings for the Jewish people who suffered under the Nazis, and for those who risked their lives to protect them in any way they could. The US military men who spoke about what they saw should be a light to all who try to deny the Holocaust. It happened and it should never be forgotten.

I found out through DNA and process of elimination that my grandfather was Jewish. this piece of information sent me into immersion of the history of the time. I am not certain that this book taught me anything that I didn't already know but hearing it first person was moving and bittetsweet. The only crime a Jew ever committed was being Jewish.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. I think everyone should read this and think of it's implications today.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I don't think anyone could listen to this without being emotionally stunned.
Any additional comments?
This is not a narrative. <br/>Simply the voices of survivors, telling of the horror endured. Sadly very few of whom have lived into the 21st Century. <br/>Luckily their testament has been recorded in print, on film and tape, to stand as an indictment of horror for all time.
