In 1941 Berek Jakubowicz (now Benjamin Jacobs) was deported from his Polish village and remained a prisoner of the Reich until the final days of the war.

Very good read. The author presented his story as though he was sitting down with you to tell his story. Stories such as these need to be heard & we need to listen.

Who needs fiction when real life is so amazing? This book helps put into perspective what true struggles really are. Ben escapes death so many times and has such courage and fortitude. This is one of many holocaust stories worth reading.
