If you could sum up They Were Just People in three words, what would they be?
They Were Just People is a compilation of intimate stories from first-hand survivors of the Holocaust in Poland.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Zygie and Sol Allweiss's story as teens is a fascinating account of their harrowing escape from the Nazi's. It's also a story revealing the kindness of their non-Jew Polish friends and neighbors who care for them throughout the war.
Which character – as performed by Charles Kabala – was your favorite?
Since the authors investigated and reported the memories of over twenty brave individuals, I could not just choose one. Charles Kabala's authentic tone brings to life each survivor and rescuer. I was drawn into every nuance and detail of each story. Since the events of the stories are intense and rich, I appreciate Mr. Kabala's steady pacing that gave me time to digest the narrative.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I could only listen to a few stories in one sitting--probably because the subject matter was not fictional, but rather unthinkable life or death situations and often disturbing.
Any additional comments?
Mr. Kabala's voice is smooth and calming. He pronounces with ease the (unfamilair and difficult) Polish names. While listening to the heartbreaking stories, I was impressed with his ability to concurrently express warmth. I recommend this audiobook.
