Description

Olga Lengyel tells, frankly and without compromise, one of the most horrifying stories of all time. This true, documented chronicle is the intimate, day-to-day record of a beautiful woman who survived the nightmare of Auschwitz and Birchenau. This book is a necessary reminder of one of the ugliest chapters in the history of human civilization.

It was a shocking experience. It is a shocking book.

Five Chimneys

Struggled to listen. The fake accent of the narrator was very annoying. She could have read the book without trying to affect a European accent. I imagine the story was good. I feel great empathy for the Holocaust survivors. I have finished this book. What a terrible tale. Heart breaking. Once again I stress the affected accent was very annoying. She should have narrated the book in her natural accent.

Interesting facts

It has some interesting facts but the writer isn't a natural at storytelling. It's hard to follow and jumps around chronologically and geographically. The Narrator didn't help. She was hard to listen to trying to give everything a German accent

Incredible story! OK performance.

For those who seek out memoirs of the Holocaust, this book is a MUST READ! The performance of this audio book is only “OK”; the fake accents were badly rendered. Dear listeners: please don’t let the performance take away from this INCREDIBLE story of perseverance and inspiration.

five chimneys

to believe is to have known some one or been told a true history of what happened in those terrible years. A country so small to raise up to such awful hate toward human beings and clam they didn't know... We must all hear, read, and learn all we can so thus doesn't happen again, or it will even worse.

good story but bad performance

The narrator struggled with the eastern european accent in the beginning of the book and overall mainly abandoned it throughout. At one point she was reading with a Brittish accent although it was still the same main character speaking. She also read most of the story in the same angry tone. This performance made the story difficult to get through. It would have been better if the narrator had been able to portray a range of emotions and had not used the fake eastern european accent. The story was very good but it would have probably been better if i had read it from a tangible book rather than listen to this recording.

Unbelievable story of a very strong woman. So much hardship and suffering. I encourage everyone to listen to this book. Much to learn. Outstanding performance by the narrator.

Great historical data

I really enjoyed this book, talks about the overall experience in Auschwitz and the daily struggles to stay alive. Sad book of course and its similar in story to all other holocust books I read in the past.
