    "I do not hate. To hate is to let Hitler win." - Rena Kornreich Gelissen. On March 26, 1942, the first mass transport of Jews - 999 young women - arrived in Auschwitz. Among them was Rena Kornreich, the 716th woman numbered in camp. A few days later, her sister Danka arrives and so begins a trial of love and courage that will last three years and 41 days, from the beginning Auschwitz death camp to the end of the war.

    Erin says: "Great story, poor recording and performance."

    What didn’t you like about Heather Dune Macadam’s performance?

    This isn't a professional recording or reading, and the story suffers slightly because of it. The editing is blatantly obvious (the volume alternates drastically, sometimes within sentences). I liken it to being read a book by an elementary school teacher. Sometimes, you can hear noises in the background (chirping birds) and Macadam's makes multiple mistakes that weren't corrected. Her "acted out" voices often take away from the seriousness of the situations faced. It's a great book -- I just wish it had been recorded by a professional in a proper studio.
