    500 thoughts on “Memories of Evil”

    1. Outstanding Holocaust Memoir!You want to read this book no matter if you have already read a number of Holocaust memoirs or none at all. This book is very well written, and while it paints a true picture of the Holocaust, it spares you the detailed description of the worst atrocities. As such, it is also recommended for readers who don’t have the stomach for reading more descriptive Holocaust memoirs. I will not tell more about the contents, as I see no need to repeat the very informative desc [...]


    2. This was a harrowing and intense read. To vicariously experience the Holocaust through the eyes of a young (Jewish) boy was almost too intense in fact. For anyone to endure the level of depravity Holocaust victims were put through is of course a great tragedy, but somehow when it's a child it is the worst tragedy of all for they do not have the same coping mechanisms or life experience. Peter Kubicek is a Holocaust survivor who initially began writing this book when his twin daughters were aroun [...]


    3. "Memories of Evil" by Peter Kubicek is a haunting and chilling story of survival. Kubiceck is a survivor of eight concentration camps, six Nazi and two Slovak fascist camps. Now in his eighties, Kubicek brings himself back to the horror of the Holocaust to write this memoir that is sure to influence the literary world. What Elie Wiesel did with his Holocaust memoir "Night" is what Kubicek is destined to do with "Memories of Evil."Imagine your fifteenth birthday. Now imagine spending it in a conc [...]


    4. I really cannot add anything otherthan to say everyone should read this book.It is very short but a very honest recollectionof this man's horrendous experience at incrediblythe age of just 15 years.It was very moving and honest.I was also surprised in the story with the authorsrecollection of small random acts of kindness in theconcentration camps.I found the statistics at the very end of the book really hit home.Really shocking.I will read this book at least once a year.


    5. 1000: 1 Odds: Memoir of a World War II ChildhoodThe above was my first attempt at a memoir. " Memories of Evil" is an expanded version of same.A memoir of this type is emotionally very difficult to write. You are forced to dredge up, fragment by fragment, painful, long-burried memories which you had previously hoped to forget. While the process caused me untold sleepless nights, ultimately the writing itself proved to be a real catharsis. As I came closer to the end of my story I could not wait [...]


    6. Memories of Evil: Recalling a World War II Childhood by Peter Kubicek: In his memoir, Memories of Evil, Peter Kubicek bears personal witness to the terror of the Holocaust. His book is a testimonial to those who by strength of spirit and conviction, and sometimes through kind fate, managed to survive humanity's worst genocide - the Holocaust.Kubicek describes the degradation and inhumanity felt by Nazi victims. His narration uncovers the horror of incarceration, starvation, forced labor and brut [...]


    7. This is a very spare (almost laconic) memoir of survival. Kubicek tells the reader: "In March, 1942, the Slovak government embarked with great determination and enthusiasm on the task of annihilating Slovak Jewry, a community of close to 90,000 people." By the end of the book, the "final statistics"are given in microscopic fashion. Who is deported? Who died? From the number of Slovak Jews in the former Czechoslovakia, to those Jews in Kubicek's hometown of Trencin, to the Jews in his elementary [...]


    8. This book reads like a dialogue with Peter Kubicek. I sat down one night, turned on the reading light, started reading this book, and soon after found myself in the streets of Trecin, walking alongside a juvenile Kubicek. I could hear his voice, the sounds, I could sense the smells. Reading this book is an authentic privilege; the privilege of having Mr, Kubicek tell you his story, first hand, for about 10 hours, non stop. You will not want to stop. The style is direct; because the story so requ [...]


    9. Memories of Evil: Recalling a World War II Childhood was written by Peter Kubicek. Peter is a Holocaust survivor who wrote a short story of his fifteenth birthday to give to his daughters when they were fifteen. Later, he took that short selection and added to it realizing he needed to put his memories on paper for the future. He survived two camps in Slovakia and then six German concentration camps. Upon liberation, he was reunited with his Mother and they were brought to the United States by h [...]

    11. This is a good book about the life of young boy in the holocaust. However, I feel the book is a bit too short, and that the author self-censored himself. The book lacks almost any detail about camp brutality, which I find necessary to fully understand the holocaust. A good book, without a doubt, and a corageous author, but I can't give it more stars because it's far from Kertesz masterpiece Fatelesness.


    12. I don't know how Peter Kubicek survived the horror that was the concentration camp. It seemed like only through a series of dumb-luck circumstances that he did survive. His account of how things really were contrast with a lot of invented stories of the Holocaust. In particular, if you're thinking of reading The Boy in Striped Pajamas, you should read this account first.


    13. 11/25: page 60 "One of a kind.""Memories of Evil: A World War II Childhood" by Peter Kubicek is: A ONCE IN A LIFETIME BOOK & EXPERIENCE!I will return to write a "real" review, but I want to share some of my thoughts and feelings about this utterly from the heart and soul book. There are a plethora of reasons why this book stands out from other memoirs written by other Holocaust survivors. But two examples are that the author, Peter Kubicek, gives great insight into how and why many things oc [...]


    14. This was a reasonably short but well written book about the Holocaust.I'd like to hear more about Peter's live and how he adjusted to normal life in the US after what he went through.
