This is not a Holocaust book as much as a historic perspective of two remarkable people who lived through the Holocaust.
Kati and Willi Salcer experience things no human being should have to experience. As a history teacher I was sadly well versed in the horrors of the Holocaust but that was an in general kind of knowledge. The lives of Kati and Willi brought home a more personal knowledge and perhaps due to the more personal nature the knowledge was all the more horrific.
These two people underwent things beyond our imagination and came out the other side both strong and hopeful. Their accomplishments to go from penniless to successful while dealing with the trauma of their lives is remarkable.
The book is neither easy to read or a comfortable read but it is worth reading.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
