This is a well written book. I have read 40 to 50 biographies on the holocaust and this one is different. What makes it different is that if I had been the author I may have not wanted to write this story. I wonder what the author thinks the difference between him and a German soldier is? A German soldier is in the army. He has to do what his superiors tell him. He is not free to go whenever he wants. If he did he would be a deserter. The author here takes jobs working directly for the SS and Gestapo. He allows them to use him which because of his work they can comfortably continue to carry on their heinous plans to exterminate the Jews. He says he is doing this for his survival. Around him other Jews continue to be selected and are sent to their deaths. But the SS like him. And they keep him. But here is what is the difference between him and a soldier who works for the Reich. A soldier has a duty to escape. The author had opportunities to escape. Yet he checked himself in. Some of the SS guards laughed because he checked himself into prison when he cold have escaped. Another time there was no guard on him and he checked himself back into slavery for the Reich. Amazing! So it seems he willingly worked for the Nazis. Some will do anything to survive regardless of the consequences to those less fortunate. It seems to me he aided and assisted the Nazis even though he says he didn't want to.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
