    Following the success of Forgotten Voices of the Great War, the series now chronicles one of human histories darkest hours. The author comes to the project following her significant work in recording the experiences of Holocaust survivors for the Imperial War Museum sound archive, one of the most important archives of its kind in the world. The intertwined moving and revealing interviews reveal the sheer complexity and horror of the Holocaust.

    Story

    This book is like listening to a documentary; several holocaust survivors are interviewed and you can hear their real voices and stories. The interviews are not only with Jewish holocaust survivors but with POW's and a Jehovah's Witness as well. Very captivating, with the most moving part being when you hear the stories of each person's liberation and the hope that they felt at the time, inspiring really.

    I was tickled that Denis Avey was interviewed and I was able to hear his voice IRL as I have just finished listening to his 2011 book, The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz (which I highly recommend).

    Corrie ten Boom was a Dutch watchmaker who became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitler's concentration camps, and one of the most remarkable evangelists of the 20h century. In World War II she and her family risked their lives to help Jews and underground workers escape from the Nazi's, and for their work they were tested in the infamous Nazi death camps. Only Corrie among her whole family survived to tell the story of how faith ultimately triumphs over evil.

    Story

    These days on average, most people would never have the honor or great responsibility of saving another human beings life; not to mention multiple human beings lives.
    For me, a book like this give me hope in humanity. A hope much like a candle that gets dimmer and dimmer as the days drag on, but is re-lit to it's former glory upon hearing such a beautiful treasure of a story.

    During a time not so long ago, there were many people in need of multitudes of complicated assistance, and there were others courageous enough to open their doors and do their best to provide the much needed aid; risking their own lives to save the lives of those they didn't even know, without a second thought.
    It would have been much easier, and better for their health, if the ten Boom family just turned those in need away. The couldn't turn one soul away, and in helping these people they save the lives of many, many human beings.

    Corrie ten Boom's story is entrancing and fascinatingly addictive, once you start you can't stop. One family with so much love in their hearts, I could only hope to have the honor of helping one person in my life the way they helped so, so many during theirs.
    This is a book not to miss if you like suspense, hearing about the triumphs of good over extreme evil, and anything about WW2 heroics.

    IMO-- LISTEN TO THIS BOOK, IT'S AWESOME!
