david faber is a very good role model and he came to my school warms springs middle school on june 5 2008 and he gave a touchy speech and talked about wat he went through which was very touching and he is doing what he promised his mom by telling everyone wat happened and what the stupid nazis did to him and the thing that kept him going was his hope and his braveness

David Faber came to my school to talk. He is truly my idol. He went through that much and made it to where he is now. He proved he was MUCH stronger then the Nazis. His strength determination and hope helped him get threw that tuff time. I admire him very much, and his speach was very touching. It gave me a better understanding about what the halocaust really was. Great book. Five stars.

This book is truly the best book i have ever read. Sure, it is sad, but i really learned what happened to the people Hitler discriminated against. David Faber came and gave an assembly at my middle school and i couldn't help but cry. He went through so much. Afterwards, i had to buy myself his book. After i read it, it gave me a greater understanding of what dictators can do. I hope that it will never happen again. Oh, and David Faber, sir, if you ever happen to see this, know that your story truly did affect me and i am so sorry that you had to go through that.

Just saw him speak today. I can count the times I've cried on one hand and had tears in my eyes (they didn't come out :-D) during parts of this book and his presentation. Reading this book is a MUST for any civilized individual.

David Faber came to my school to talk to all 8th graders and it was so sad to hear how he and his neighbors and other jewish families got treated. When my teacher read pages 99-101 it was very sad to hear that.He had to watch his older brother get murdered.

This book is the best book I'll ever read in my life, David Faber just came to my school today, and he is just an awesome speaker.He is also an awesome writer! Because of Romek is so emotional, yet it also takes you right there in the midst of all this HATRED. If I were you, I'd definately read this book. And why not from B&N!!

An outstanding autobiographical book that describes a young Jewish boy's struggle to survive the cruelty of the Nazi persecution and Holocaust. David Faber tells his family's story facing death, starvation, and fear of capture by the Nazis. This book gives the reader the chance to experience the harsh reality of the Holocaust. This is a historical description as told by this Holocaust survivor about his childhood, filled with pain, torture, death, and emotional suffering by his family and fellow Jewish people.

You dont really get the impact of the Hollocost untill you read a book like this. David Faber spoke at my daughters high school, and within 10 minutes everyone was in tears. I highly reccomend this book, it is tragic, but also teaches a huge lesson.

I honestly didn't care about what happened with Hitler's concentration camps in WWII, to me it was just something that happened in history and we must remember it. Then I heard what David Faber had to say and I realized how horrifying it really was. I heard him tell his story, but he only said so much. This book has everything he went through and I have nothing but respect for this man. It made me realize that hate because of someone's religion, race, or WHATEVER is pointless. This book and David Faber really opened my eyes to reality. After hearing his story and reading his book, the whole 'Nazi' lifestyle, for me, is over. As David Faber said 'How could someone say they love Jesus and do something like this to another human being?' I know I went into a different subject and I apologize, but this is an excellent book.

If you have any interest in reading a sincere, descriptive book about the unbelievable, calculated murder that the Germans carried out and how it effected a young boy and his family, then read this book! I've read this book so many times, I have lost count. My little sister (whom I read it with -probably- the 200th time around)enjoyed it, too. She's only 13 though so she was a bit traumatized. I'd reccommend it for kids that are ages 15+. It is easy to empathize with David Faber. Faber captures the human element that most stories leave out. The first few times I read 'Because of Romek' I cried because I couldn't believe the inhumanities that happened during the Jewish Holocaust. Now, I have come to realize that it still goes on. Books like this are important because they disallow important topics not to pass us by unexamined. The only way to fix a problem is to be aware of it first! Write me with any questions regarding the book, if you'd like. Peace, Jessica Whitney (sunrayzer@aol.com)

it's a real tear jerker,david faber is one of the few jews to survive the holocaust and to decide to write about his story during ww2.and after you read this book you'll feel for him and his family along with the other survivers.
