    A thought provoking, somber read

    I'm not sure I like the format of the book or the writing style but nevertheless this is an incredible, well researched story that sheds a great deal of light on what it was like to be a Jew in Europe during ww2. It's difficult to understand how not only Nazis but also Poles could have such a hatred for Jews, it seems as if too many people during this time lacked compassion and basic morals. It is also unbelievable that many government bodies (and particularly the pope) stood by and rattled off excuses as to why they were unable to step in while innocent people were being murdered. Those who escaped Sobibor and contributed to this book must have a tremendous amount of courage, going back in their minds to a place I can't even begin to imagine. It is important though, for the world to know what happened, and to honor those who perished and those who survived. I believe this book has succeeded in that.

    Escape from Sobibor

    I think everyone should read this to remind ourselves what we all are capable of, even though we think we are beyond this kind of cruelty toward others! Sometimes we can be so sanctimonious in our belief that we would never behave the way other people did in war time. War does not give us license to treat human beings like dogs, or worse!!

    Very moving

    A stark description of inhuman savagery at its very worst and human endurance and fortitude at its very best. Readers not surprised at the attitude of the Nazis may find the hatred of Polish gentiles for Jews both shocking and disgusting in equal measure.

    Endurance to the limit

    Excellent read I don’t know how some of these people had that will to survive. No words to the people that traumatized and tortured and killed innocent people... horrible. Let None of us ever forget the terror of those days.
