When visions come to you through unrelenting dreams, crying to be written, one eventually complies. Hence, we have the story of a young man who is to take on the challenge of sharing a life unfinished, a life that has been cut short at a death camp designed for mass murder. It offers the possibility that the darkest part of man can be slayed by the strength and victory of a beautiful spirit. It is both a lesson in history and an offer of hope as our world continues to struggle in the fight of good versus evil.

This is an incredible, interwoven tale of 2 young men. The first is a sweet young boy in Poland at the beginning of the war. The second is a young college-aged male during the late 1970's who makes an epic pilgrimage to Treblinka and the horrors bestowed there. We are taken to the earliest days of the Nazi regime and the sudden, tragic loss of innocence delivered there. We follow this young boy's heartbreaking journey and his desperate attempt to shield what is left of his family. We track the older boy's lifetime quest to travel to the place where the gates of hell were thrown open and try to make sense of the devastation that took place so many years ago. These characters are so richly created and their stories both so sadly relate-able yet this is a story about hope, and about the strength and devotion of family. Despite the backdrop and the unspeakable horrors of the war, this story keeps you looking for more. The story ends with a beautiful, unexpected small turn that is truly heartwarming in its own regard. I am so eagerly looking forward to seeing the future works of these gifted writers.
A literary gem! A tour de force! The authors bring to “life” the horrors of the holocaust as experienced by its victims and witnessed firsthand by those of us now safely removed from the Nazi evil. This work is so compelling that the reader will not be able to stop until the last word has been reached and absorbed. A must read for our generation as it seeks to reach beyond an intellectual perspective of the holocaust to an emotional and spiritual understanding of the horrors that man is capable of inflicting to the everlasting detriment of our humanity. This book will awaken its readers to a reality as “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” did to a long ago generation. Lee Campo
