Editorial Reviews

Christopher Browning
Written with clinical precision, Henry Glenwick's memoirs provide particularly valuable insight…At each stop he candidly diagnoses the key contacts and privileges that gave him a chance at survival.
Harold Schulweis
…Especially important for a post-Holocaust generation…Glenwick…responded to a life of threat and suffering by pursuing a life of dignity and purpose. Godliness is discovered in the response to, not in the cause of, tragedy.
Samuel Kassow
A gripping narrative of Jewish life under the Nazi occupation, as well as rarely included material about the prewar era in Warsaw. The writing is very understated and very powerful. Highly recommended!
Yael Danieli
…depicts both the ordinariness and the challenges of life…of a young man struggling to become a doctor and practice his profession when humanity very nearly lost itself.
Stephen Berk
A true story of courage, luck, brutality, and both the friendship and hostility of strangers. It is the Holocaust in microcosm, and I heartily recommend it.
Neil Gillman
…The clinical detachment with which he writes…serves to heighten both the horror that he confronted daily and the resolve which enabled him to survive. This is a gripping account.
