It took a few pages to get into the book, but then I was hooked. I pulled an all-nighter because I couldn't put it down.

The construct of the story pulls you in... you become part of the story - seeing the world as Ernst did, feeling his pride, anger, fear, betrayal, heartbreak and final triumph. Even after having read it days ago, I cannot shake the thoughts and experiences of this young boy living through hell.

This an important book which furthers the necessary reminder of what we cannot as humanity, ever forget, allow to be dismissed or swept under the "rug" of our collective history. The growing evil pervading our global mindset would have the facts of the Holocaust removed from our consciousness, ultimately lending to the future potential of it repeating and much, much worse.

Thank you for standing up for the millions who died, survived, as well as the families, friends and supporters of the victims of the evil perpetrated on these, our fellow human beings.

A unique and enthralling story of one child's survival through an unimaginable time in our history. The hardships suffered by the prisoners of Dachau come to life in this vivid depiction pitting the powerless against the brutally cruel, and reveals how strong the human spirit can be when coupled with one's faith in God.

The book quickly turns into a great story of survival. It portrays the Holocaust from the view of an unexpected participant and is told in a way that is both unique and engaging. A must-read for any Holocaust enthusiast or to anyone curious about the trials endured by the Holocaust's victims.

This powerfully heartfelt story portrays the unimaginable hardships of a generation and their strength to battle through it. The imagery and the metaphorical use of music brings more depth to the novel's characters, as well as a deeper emotional connection with the audience.

In this day and age when historical revisionism is in vogue, we need to take moments and remember the truth about history least anyone come and try to remove it by presenting their `version' of history which has a hidden agenda. Even with fictional characters this is a quality reminder of the true history that of recent past and will worth the time and money.
