    The tale of the suffering of two Jewish brothers

    This Holocaust story is heartbreaking. It is brutal at times and hard to read. The emotions are extreme and realistic. It was a terrible time in history and the atrocities against the Jewish people are unforgivable. Hitler caused so much pain and suffering for so many. These brothers went through so much, I am glad they found each other again. It was sad to see how the non Jewish treated them and that someone took their home. Not only was the pain and suffering inflicted at the time in Auschwitz, and the other camps, but it is a hurt that they will forever carry with them and they will never forget, nor should we thus it be repeated in history. It was written in a prose like writing which was a bit hard to follow, but it was a good story and it needed to be told. Thanks to the Malka Adler, Harper Collins UK, One More Chapter publishing, and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy.

    A very moving story

    This is the moving story of two brothers who found each other in the concentration camp and survived the brutal treatment. This is not for the faint of heart because it's told exactly how and what happened to them and others at the hands of the Germans. Quite a read!

    A haunting tale

    I read a lot of historical fiction especially based around WWII, but I have to say that this was one of the hardest books I've ever read. Not in terms of word-level, but in terms of the graphic first-person POVs that the story contains. I read the first couple of chapters and honestly didn't want to read any more because it was so painful and horrifying to read even as a bystander in the future. I made myself go back to it because the simple act of reading it was not even 1% of the pain that these humans went through during the Holocaust. At alternate times, I wanted to throw up, turn away, and cry. The writing seemed a bit abrasive at times, but it fits the mood of the book when you have no food and your brain can't function, just one step at a time. This book really rocked me even to the end when it talks about the continued effects of the Holocaust for the rest of these survivors' lives.
