    Ready sad

    As I was born about the time that Max went to the concentration camps it is Unimaginable the horror that he experienced as I was being lovingly welcomed in to my family. Thank you for writing this book and thank you Canada Reads 2018 for choosing it as a book to read .

    Thank you

    I cannot fully understand how evil of this magnitude takes shape in society. I presume a portion of a society are particularly evil and hugely persuasive. But how is it that someone like me could end up as a willing evil doer. It scares me to my core. I was struck by how alone you were among so many. Equally striking was how that time and its agony could equate easily to a decade when in fact it was the last year of that awful war. In my mind it will feel much like I imagine an eternity but greatfully it was not and you survived and thrived. I learned a lot and pray the world will take note. We must.

    By Chance Alone

    I had difficulty putting this book down. The terrible experiences Max Eisen and so many Jewish people suffered were deplorable. War is an awful thing, it's effects filtering down from generation to generation. I recognize how painful it must have been for the author to expose his lufe. Thank you. The Lord bless you and keep you.

    a must read

    Max Eisen was only 15 when he and his family were rounded up and taken to Auschwitz in 1944. In this book, Eisen shares the horror and inhumanity his family and millions of other Jews suffered. Eisen worked in the concentration camp's hospital, and provides details and information I have never read in other books. Eisen also reveals the difficulties and continued mistreatment Jews faced even after they were liberated. Eisen made a promise to his father that he would tell the world about their experiences, and he keeps this promise through the speeches he gives all over the world, and by writing this book. I am in awe of Max Eisen's resiliency and courage. His writing made me feel like I was there, seeing things through his eyes. Racism and prejudice is on the rise in today's world, and, like Max Eisen, I wish everyone would read books like this so they learn or remember, and the horrors of the past will never be repeated.

    By chance alone

    I could not put this book down. The author did a fantastic job writing allowing the reader learn just what the holocast survivors went through. A beautiful book.
