    A must read

    This isn't an easy book to read but one that you should definitely finish. It tells the story of father Gustav and son Fritz who are taken from their family at the start of the war for being Jewish. They start their journey in the concentration camp at Buchenwald and it is only them being together that sees them through the horrors of day to day life. When Gustav is chosen to transfer to Auschwitz - Fritz makes the unusual request to transfer with him knowing that this could be certain death. His request is granted and they make the gruelling journey and the nightmare continues but even worse than they had survived previously. The story is taken from a diary that Gustav kept throughout their time within the camps and also interviews following their release. Most people are aware of the atrocities of the concentration camps and the holocaust as taught in schools and films such as Schindlers List - but this gives a more detailed account of what the prisoners endured over the years.

    The Boy Who Followed His Father into

    This book is amazing. Every word gives a heartwrenching reality of what was happening in concentration camps like those. Information that i had never heard of was pulled into centre stage and everything was written as though being experienced first hand. Reccommended for people of all ages.
