Yes! The reader, George Guidall, evokes our passion as he read the history of Elie Wiesel in some of the darkest day of recent history.
This is a great book that should be required reading for anyone studying the history of the 2oth century.
It was a page turner in the sense that it was fascinating to get somewhat of an inside look of how the Jews were rounded up and the nieveity of what was being done, and ultimately was done. Recommend book!
Elie's memoir of discrediting warnings, living in Auschwitz when man has nothing to live for, and being rescued as a lifeless, hungry being stripped of humanity's intrinsic reaction of revenge is short and somber. Worth the read/listen for everyone to understand the atrocities that humans are capable of.
This was a powerful story that shook me yo my core. I clung to every word waiting for more news of yet another senseless death. Hard to believe this happen not so long ago. I'm amazed at how soon we forget.
Nothing extra here . Quite simply spoken : Rather matter of fact. As per Kurtz, simply the "Horror".
To comprehend unscaled horror from a child's viewpoint brings tears and sorrow to my body and soul. No man, woman or child should have to see such suffering. I admire your father greatly for suffering so much for you. Surely he longed for his wife but knew his young son still needed guidance. He did endure to the end for you. There are many on this earth who do not have even that in their young lives. Your story stays we me now forever.
I recommend the book, and it is an easy to listen to book - but the subject is not easy. The pictures painted are very graphic and unsettling. It makes me ask what I might be overlooking now with all the genocide in the world.
He has a nice voice.
