1 pointI read the online version. So hard to grasp that such should happen. Such cruelty - and yet occasional great moments of compassion and kindness between father and son. And other moments of hideous greed. I too wished that it would be a different ending... so sad that Eliezer and his father were parted, at (as it were) one minute to midnight - just before their release. And yet this sad story is just one of - of millions.
1 pointI just finished the audio book. It is well suited to an audio narration. The book is powerful and moving. It really opens one's eyes to the sheer magnitude of what happened. I kept finding myself wishing it would end a bit differently but real life has a tendency to do that. Thanks for recommending it.
