9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Michael J. Goodavish (tomichael@usa.net) on August 23, 1997
Format: Hardcover
Perhaps you, like I, at times wonder of what stuff you are made. In a truly horrible situation, would you do what it right at all cost? Would you have the inner fortitude to persistently march forward, to place your life at risk for the good of others? Often, and sadly, I suspect I would not; but, my ego hopes I would.

Lithuania might be an unfamiliar name to you. But, this true story invites you to join the author in his nightmarish run from the Nazis during World War II. You'll know what it is like to be suddenly wrenched from your home, country and family by the pursuit of others out to exterminate you, simply because you happen to be in the way.

In his flight, the author chooses paths of moral and physical courage, in order to preserve meaning for his life. Would I have joined him? Or would I have given up? What about you? Here's a chance to "test your stuff," at least in the safe pages of a good read.

the author writes in a "detached" style.I guess that is the only way he could recount these horrible experiences inposed upon him by subhumans. It is a superb diary.

How Dark the Heavens is a valuable resource of historical information on the Holocaust, and an authentic recollection by a survivor. It is unique, in that this book pulls the reader into the story as would a novel.

This is one of my all time favorite books. Not because I love to read about the horrors inflicted on so many for no other reason than a religion but because this book is a solemn reminder that "evil happens when good men do nothing".

This book is gripping, tear jerking, thought provoking and a page turner. The voice it is written in is clear, concise, and moving. It is a beautifully sad memoire.

I think every United States citizen should be required to read this while in high school.
