    • I thought I knew something of the war, the camps and what it was like , this book gave a new insight , the reality of surviving on a daily basis ...there are no words for what happened in those camps ...those that survived and those that did not are all hero’s..there bravery is astonishing ...
    • Being a mom, I don't get to read often. I have been using Amazon to buy books for my kids for years. So, when I read the reviews for this book, I figured that it would be a good companion book to the Diary of Anne Frank, when they read that. Once it got here I read the jacket and was intrigued. I started to read it and I completed it in less than 24 hours. Lale's story of love, and hardship, and death, and life, and chocolate, was spellbinding. I couldn't put it down. I cried at the end and I found the Afterwords and the Author's notes to be a wonderful closing to this harrowing adventure. There were parts that hurt my heart and made my stomach ache for all of those innocent souls. I don't think he was a collaborator, he did whatever he needed to to stay alive in a brutal environment. May he and Gita R.I.P. together.
    • This book was designated as our book club's next read and though I was excited to read it, as I had read several good reviews, I kept putting it off as I felt that I knew, to some level, the horror of the subject-matter. Hence as I started to read it I was very uncomfortable, but as the book progressed I felt it a compelling read into the reality of human nature. I gave it five stars rather than four, as I felt four stars did not do it justice.
    • Absolutely loved it. What a wonderful, miraculous story of love and perseverance in amongst the horror and devastation of Auschwitz. For it to be true is just amazing, and shows the true strength of humans. Thank you to the late author for sharing this with the world.
    • Lale and Gita's story grabbed me from the first page and I couldn't put this book down. Much as their love made the unbearable bearable, the author's writing both brought horrors to life and also kept hope alive. I so wanted to learn what happened to these so-vivid people, but I didn't want the book to end, as I was so captivated. Loved it, and them.
