I enjoyed this book so much because the first part is his struggle going through a concentration camp and how he becomes free once they are rescued but then Dawn and Day detail how it was after the war and how it was being him and moving on with his life!
You can almost hear the author’s powerful voice throughout the whole novel, and it takes you to the darkest places to witness people live and suffer while the whole world chose to close its eyes. Their willpower to survive, and what’s more important, to remain human in such harrowing conditions, is truly worth admiration. Words can’t describe what a burden it was for a young, somewhat sheltered teenage boy, who spent his other, previous life in search of God, to witness his former neighbors, family and the other unfortunates around him die one by one and eventually give up on everything – life, God who they felt had failed them miserably and the very idea of justice. And yet this boy clung to life not so much for himself, but for his father, refusing to give up on the dying man even when the man himself couldn’t carry on anymore.
The other two parts of this trilogy are novels, both dealing with “the life after,” when the protagonist tried to analyze the horrific effect that the Holocaust had on his and many other lives, and how it shaped him into what he is now. An executor, metaphorically trying on his former tormentors’ uniform so as not to become a victim once again; and a man who, even though he had survived, had left too much back there, in the camps, and doesn’t feel that he belongs in the world of the living around him.
The language is dark, strong and powerful, and the messages in all three parts are so incredibly relevant to the current events that they will send chills down your spine. Read this book if you haven’t already – not only it’s an eternal classic, but a lesson that must never be forgotten.
