When Jacques Lusseyran was an eight-year-old Parisian schoolboy, he was blinded in an accident. He finished his schooling determined to participate in the world around him. In 1941, when he was seventeen, that world was Nazi-occupied France. Lusseyran formed a resistance group with fifty-two boys and used his heightened senses to recruit the best. Eventually, Lusseyran was arrested and sent to the Buchenwald concentration camp in a transport of two thousand resistance fighters. He was one of only thirty from the transport to survive. His gripping story is one of the most powerful and insightful descriptions of living and thriving with blindness, or indeed any challenge, ever published.

Reading books is as much a part of my daily life as is eating food. So, I have read a few over six decades on this planet. Few books have impacted my vision and purpose as has this wonderful book.
This is a beautiful story of a good man and his honest testimony. It has inspired and humbled me. If you, like myself, are yearning for some small ray of heaven's light to shine through the hellish evil of the holocaust, please listen to this.
