Publisher's Summary

Mendel (Manny) Steinberg spent his teens in Nazi extermination camps in Germany and Poland, miraculously surviving while millions perished. This is his story.
Born in 1925 in the Jewish ghetto in Radom, Poland, Manny soon realized that people of Jewish faith were increasingly being regarded as outsiders. In September 1939 the Nazis invaded, and the nightmare started. The city's Jewish population had no chance of escaping and was faced with starvation, torture, sexual abuse and ultimately deportation.
Outcry is the candid and moving account of a teenager who survived four Nazi camps: Dachau, Auschwitz, Vaihingen and Neckagerach. While being subjected to torture and degradation, he agonized over two haunting questions: "Why the Jews?" and "How can the world let this happen?" These questions remain hard to answer.
Manny's brother Stanley had jumped off the cattle wagon on the way to the extermination camp where his mother and younger brother were to perish. Desperately lonely and hungry, Stanley stood outside the compound hoping to catch a glimpse of Manny and their father. Once he discovered that they were among the prisoners, he turned himself in. The days were marked by hunger, cold, hard labor, and fear. Knowing that other members of the family were in the same camp kept them alive. Since acknowledging each other would have meant death, they pretended to be complete strangers.
Manny relates how he was served human flesh and was forced to shave the heads of female corpses and pull out their teeth. Cherishing a picture of his beloved mother in his wooden shoe, he miraculously survived the terror of the Polish and German concentration camps together with his father and brother.

Compelling Eye-witness Account

Any additional comments?

This book was written as a first-hand account of the Nazi holocaust from the point-of-view of someone who was there, a Jew, a survivor, from the start until the end. What he experienced and witnessed should cause a person to become cold and bitter, but throughout the book, Mr. Steinberg never fails to deliver a message of hope. As someone who has never come close to the horrors Manny faced for many, many years during WWII, I can only guess at how I would react and ultimately survive under similar circumstances.

That he is alive today to tell his story is truly a blessing, and I thank him for being brave enough to relive an unthinkable past, and make the world all the wiser for it.

The narration, delivered by Manny's son Gary, has the expected choppiness of one who is not a professional reader, but the closeness of the narrator to the author allows for a great deal of latitude in the delivery, given the clear emotion and care with which Gary reads his father's word.

Extremely moving

A true life story of survival. What can one say?!! Humbled yet again when reading such heartache pain and suffering. As I listened it was truly hard to imagine this was actually, like so many others, a true account of a survivor, this one more poignantly read by the survivors grandson. Remarkable courage and strength shown throughout. People sometimes ask why do I read such stories like answer is because if we don't the past is forgotten and if forgotten it may all happen again.
