If this book doesn't make you THINK, you have no soul
With compassion and stark honesty, Fritz puts the reader in the place of the displaced, and provides a means through which one can almost feel the terror, frustration, hopelessness and helplessness of the people whose lives he portrays. The distant 'plight' of international refugees is taken out of the headlines and landed right in the middle of your reading room. It is not possible to ignore the call to action, not within your power to resist the need to find out more and to DO something oneself. If one person is saved from suffering the fates of those chronicled, representatives of millions around the globe, then Fritz' monumental efforts will have been worthwhile. This book reminds us we are all the same, sharing the same planet and what hurts one of us ultimately hurts us all. We are gently shown the horrors, and in a most unassuming way, without blame or judgement, made to understand exactly what we allow through simple disregard. Read it at your own risk. You might find a bit of that 60's activist you once were alive and well, and capable of making a difference again. Thank you Mark Fritz for the wake up call.Was this review helpful?
