This is a most powerful book! It is not always easy reading because of its emotional impact, but the courage and enduring spirit throughout is truly compelling. It's a must-read true account from the Holocaust era. Don't miss it.
Just finished reading it and am still mulling what occurred in Nazi Poland. It's one atrocity after another, but somehow this true life man made it through and continued to do what he loved best - music. Great insert at the end of the book of the one German officer who actually helped him to survive.
As they say, better than the movie!!
A very moving true story about the second world war. The human spirit will rise no matter what the situation. The author lost his entire family. This story left me wondering if different paths were taken would they have had a better outcome? I would recommend this book to anyone interested in WWII.
