    1. While I was more than a bit irked by the author's assertation in the introductory section of this book that even modern Germans who were born after the war and therefore had absolutely nothing to do with it should still feel some kind of cultural guilt about the holocaust, this book is still definitely worth reading for the firsthand accounts from concentration camp survivors.It's not even all negative and depressing, as this book is as much about these people's lives after the war as it is abou [...]


    2. The first section was a psychological analysis of the results of captivity followed by a second section which included the conversations, numerous interviews with individuals in the camps. The first section was not of much interest, but several of the interviews were very interesting. The interviews consisted of Jews, political prisoners (mainly from the left) and a few resistance fighters. It would have been more interesting if there had been input from other groups that were persecuted such as [...]


    3. Holocaust StoryAn interesting book; it is interesting because it tries to tell the whole story. The author tells of all the people who were incarcerated in concentration camps during the War, including, for example, French resistance members. What is fascinating is to read them talk of their reactions to the camps. Nearly all had the same feelings and behaviors after the camps


    4. Important realizations.I had to read 3 or 4 books while reading this one. Individual accounts made this easier. Here's to survivors. It definitely taught me to ask the questions of people, and make sure they are not isolated, in any capacity.



    5. The journey back from Hell Very detailed coverage of people who suffered and came back to tell others. All aspects of the issue are well covered. Interesting reading.
