    I had the pleasure of meeting Freddie in an assembly hall in my home town. He was on a book tour, discussed his story and read a couple of excerpts from the book. It's really easy to read a book like this from distance and even more so that soon enough there will no longer be any survivors of the War. It gets to a point that it could even seem like fiction, it didn't happen.So reading the book soon after the talk I couldn't believe that the man that was standing in front of me was the same man in this book. Of course the horrors that he went through were terrible, but more than anything, the sheer luck that he did not become another statistic is incredible.There are many books out there on this topic and the holocaust is very well documented, but this doesn't take anything away from this book. Having met him makes the book more personable, naturally, however even for those that wouldn't have met him, I think you would have the same feelings. I read this book over 13 years ago and I'm still able to remember how I felt. I certainly recommend this
