Publisher's Summary

"Think of it as a game, Jack. Play the game right and you might outlast the Nazis."

Caught up in Hitler's Final Solution to annihilate Europe's Jews, 15-year-old Jack Mandelbaum is torn from his family and thrown into the nightmarish world of the concentration camps. Here, simple existence is a constant struggle, and Jack must learn to live hour to hour, day to day. Despite intolerable conditions, he resolves not to hate his captors and vows to see his family again. But even with his strong will to survive, how long can Jack continue to play this life-and-death game?

Monotone performance

Narration is monotone and rigid. I couldn’t get through it. I can’t rate the story because the narration was so difficult to listen to.

Heart Touching

This was short. I can not endure much suffering of other, but this was enough to break my heart and know what others had gone through. It was well done. God help us all.

Succinct Survival Story

Interesting story of how one Jewish man endured the holocaust and lived to later tell of the experience. It is detailed enough to describe the food available in the concentration camps and to imagine initial interactions with Nazi soldiers. it is satisfying to know this man later immigrated to the United States and personally speaks at the beginning of the recording.

Another incredible first hand account…

I believe everyone in the world should read a first hand account of someone that lived through WWII. I have read many accounts, from many camps and perspectives and it is just astounding to see what people will do to each other. It opens your eyes and brings you in to the real emotion and makes it more personal more then any history book with names and dates. This one is going on my list of recommendations if anyone were to ask.

Exceptional story, poor presentation

This incredible life experience so deserves a better telling. It makes for a difficult listen because of the awkward bouncing between third person and first person. It would have been better presented in the first person with an introduction and an epilogue.

A Good read

This book makes one think. Little things we ignore daily are made important. The silly childish arguments siblings have seem like heavy weights you will carry forever remembering your loved ones.

Wow!

Wow, I learned so much from this book.
Incredible Details From the suffering of real people.
Thank you to everyone who knew this story Needed to be told.
If you want to know what really went on To the prisoners of the holocaust, listen to this book. It is Graphic, but real.
The reader did a wonderful job, it sounded like he was the actual boy going through the story.
I listened to it with my 10 and 11 year-old son's.
I only pray history will not repeat itself in this way.Jesus is our only hope!

Excellent book

I do not enjoy the automated storytellers on audiobooks and prefer a human reader, but this story was so captivating I was able to ignore it. Highly recommend.

Truly outstanding!

This is a truly mesmerising account of one young boy's journey and the fact that the narrator sounds as if he's in his late teens, makes it all the better.

A true story you will not forget in a hurry!

Well narrated and re told! So sad to know this is a true story for so many! For a short story a lot was said. , and it's a story I shall not forget. I could not stop listening. Jack was a remarkable young man who endured far too much, but refused to let hatred use up his energy which helped his fight for survival.
