BookLender review by Susan on 2009-10-20 11:18:29

Deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. However, as tragic as a story this is and the horrors he had to endure, this is not a well written book. I have read books of this genre and this is not one that held my interest.
