I found this a thought provoking, if rather relentless read.

I find I didn't journal this when I picked it up at The Riverside Inn (must have been 10 months ago).

A stark story of a Jew living in occupied Czechoslavakia and his life as a non-person, having lost everything and everybody, yet continuing to live an oppressed life, invisible and unwanted. A fascinating, if difficult, semi-autobiographical story.

Journal Entry 8 by KenseyRiver at Brightlingsea, Essex United Kingdom on Wednesday, October 3, 2012
Picked up at the Colchester Convention 2012 because I feel obligated to read every Holocaust-related book I come across. I'm not sure why: guilt?, as a penance for the ease of my life?, as some way of warding off evil? No idea, but I still feel the obligation not to turn away.

Journal Entry 9 by KenseyRiver at Brightlingsea, Essex United Kingdom on Sunday, October 12, 2014
I thought I knew about the Holocaust so I was surprised by this book as it showed a new, for me, perspective of the Holocaust. It is depressing and unrelenting, but I am very glad I read it.

Passed on at the Ipswich bookcrossing meetup.
