Reviews - What do customers think about A Teenager in Hitler's Death Camps?
A must read Sep 4, 2007
A TEENAGER IN HITLER'S DEATH CAMPS is an eyewitness account of the horrors of Nazi Germany and the unbelievable hardship and savagery he and his brother encountered during their imprisonment in three different concentration camps. It's the tale of his struggle to survive, through debilitating hunger and inhumane abuse. It is well written, amazingly illustrated by the author who is a recognised artist. I would recommend it to high school teachers who discuss the Holocaust. Every teenager should read it (just as they read Anna Frank's diary) Its a moving testament to the human will and a reminder of the evils of which humanity is capable and which should Never Again be permitted to occur
