Rashke has written an unparalleled book. All as-told stories should read like SOBIBOR. In fact, you'd hardly know it was an as-told, for it is written using the techniques of fiction.
Schlomo is to be commended for having Rashke tell his story NOT in first-person. The point-of-view thus enables Rashke to get honestly into the mind of the characters. Like the ILIAD, the story is a higher truth than what actually happened, everything created and recreated and fully fleshed out.

An Emotional Story of Suffering and Triumph
This book is founded on the story of but a few survivors that were committed to expose the atrocities of the SS while surviving in a Polish Nazi death camp in WWII. This is a reality check that isn?t an easy read for the faint of heart. I commend the author for his candidness in striving to create not only accuracy of event, but to add emotion that I often find lacking in these stories. This story is a reminder that survival is so much more than physical endurance, rather a mental strategy of continually playing a deadly game of risk and reward. I am reminded that a large part of success was the selection of key people to plan escape and then to carry out the task knowing that one mistake will most likely result in torture and death. For those that wish to have a reality check on life, this book is a good reminder of testing human extremes and endurance. On the one hand we are exposed to the extremes of human brutality while on the other we connect with the human desire to live.
