He gave me a copy of this book and I read it.
Jaeme Bruckner
He spent time in various work camps and death camps along the way, surviving sometimes through what can only be described as miraculous circumstances.

I have read several holocaust books, but this very personal, yet objective, account of his life still deeply moves me today.

As God is My Witness is a heart-wrenching autobiography of Carl Rosenberg's life under Nazi rule. As a Jew, he was subject to all the horrors we have read about time and again, but his great detail and simple truths humble those of us who have made a passion of reading Holocaust related materials. This empassioned book bleeds for all those lost in the Holocaust.

I was 25. I met Carl in Omaha when I bought my first real business suit and made my first visit to a real tailor. He nealt down to cuff and mark my pants. He was so polite and father-like. As he extended his arm, his cuff raised and exposed the numbers on his wrist. I knew nothing about the holocaust other than what I had learned in school. He gave me a copy of this book and I read it. Several others have read the same copy. 20 years later, I can almost remember every word. Please take the time to read Carl's book. You will not find a more true, less filtered account of the horrors that occurred.

This is a quick read....not an easy read though. A fairly thorough story of the horrors inflicted on Jews and others by the Nazis & their collaborators. Some of the examples are difficult to accept. Anyone that believes 'people are basically good' is not paying attention and is certainly not a student of history.

One of the first things I do when reading books about history, particularly if they are biographical in nature, is to look through them and see what, if any pictures are included. On the back cover of the book is the statement that the author wrote this as the culmination of a life-long promise to his mother that if any of her children should survive they would tell the world their story so that the death and destruction inflicted by Nazi Germany upon the Jewish people should never be forgotten. The pictures included in this book help to do this but are graphic in nature being primarily shots of dead bodies taken shortly after the liberation of various death camps.

Ok - I have now finished the book and feel ready to comment in some way on Carl Rosenberg's story and how it has impacted me. I know when I read a book of this type that I will read of unspeakable horrors.There are very few (if any) books written by Jewish people who have survived the war that do not report on these horrors. This book was written in 1990 as a fulfillment of a promise the author made to his mother. It details his early life with his family in Poland and how the signs of antisemitism were very present well before the second world war but became much worse in the years approaching war.Rosenberg's father impressed on his children at an early age that staying out of sight would be one of the best ways of surviving, and Carl took his father's words to heart and from a youthful age was very careful. He was also intelligent learning to speak read and write multiple languages which also helped his survival. Ultimately, he was the only one from his family to survive. He spent time in various work camps and death camps along the way, surviving sometimes through what can only be described as miraculous circumstances.
