Everyone knows the horrific story of WWII and the Concentration Camps. This story made me think....what would I do? When would I be willing to leave my job, abandon my life and flee my country? If I left it too late by being in denial then, how would I survive in Auschwitz? Rosenberg brought the atrocities to life for me and this book will haunt me for a long time. A definite worthwhile read.
The one criticism of this book is some feel that the author has a 'Christian agenda'. While there are definitely characters with strong religious convictions I felt that it fit in with the horrific sufferings and their faith is what got them through.
