Editorial Reviews

Lynn Noel
...Filled with glimpses into the been of the author, this book is an exceptional account of one man's life ad what it's like to five and breathe beneath the jackboot of a tyrant and the struggle required to escape to freedom. The Gulag Archipelago, by A, Solzhenitsyn, or Shindler's List are two such chronicles, and so is <I>The Price of Freedom...</I>
James Comes
tells of man's struggle against his most fearsome enemy -his own kind. Rise story of mans faulty and vulnerability, At the same time, it is the story of mans greatness -how he can confront a long series of torments, endure and emerge with his essential soul and decency intact. Domokos is a writer of rare quality
Patricia White
If I had the power to make it so, <I>The Price of Freedom</I> would be required reading in every classroom in the world--and every politician, before he or she could run for office, would also have to read the book. Mr. Domokos writes lucidly, comprehensively, and from his own knowledge of a world where freedom comes with a heavy price tag. Born in Hungary, imprisoned and tortured by both the Germans and the Communists during and after WWII, and knowing hard work and starvation first
