    needed better editing, but still worth the read

    It is good to see more survivor stories still making their way into the reading public, by whatever means. For every story we get a glimpse of there are a million or more that we'll never get to see or hear.

    Highly Recommended.

    This book is very thought provoking. It was an easy read. The story of the holocaust from the point of view of a young man whose life was changed forever. He doesn't hide anything and you can easily see what he was seeing. Should be mandatory reading for all young people in high school.

    This is an excellent Holocaust story.

    This is an excellent Holocaust story. Anybody and everybody should read this book. It is a true testament to love and courage. Beyond the war and the Holocaust, this young man learns so much about the World and chooses to share it with all of us to ensure that another Holocaust like this one here does not take place again!

    Simply written, very moving

    This is another "We must not forget." story about the war and what people will do to to survive or help those they love survive. Simply told, but extremely moving. I was proud to get to know this man.

    Very moving book

    I will never forget the book " By My Mother's Hand." I believe that is what his mother wanted and in her memory he fulfilled her wishes. Great book.

    This book is a reminder of how awful the holocaust experience wa

    This book is a reminder of how awful the holocaust experience was for
    those who went through it. It also shows that the scars that were made
    during WWII became permanent, even on civilians who were made prisoners
    and were tortured. Anyone concerned about what is going on in Europe and
    in Germany today should read this book. It covers first-hand holocaust
    experience without making it too awful to read. I also read this book in
    one day -- it reads smoothly and you don't want to put it down.

    Life is Precious

    I am a baby-boomer and have heard very little if anything about what life was like in a concentration camp. Seeing all the hardships and his loved one that were killed, I admire how Melnik was able to handle life and when the war was over to fine a woman and start all over.
