A THOUSAND DAYS IN AUSCHWITZ!!!
A very powerful story!
What a powerful and dramatic story in A Thousand Days in Auschwitz by Brenda Marie Webb. This could be anyone's story, but this is Mattie's story. A fictional depiction of a time that no one should ever forget, especially the despicable nature of brutality, and murder. Inhuman Nazis and the following of orders, no matter what, of a psychopathic dictator and his generals. Any day in Auschwitz is a day too long. Auschwitz is one of the most infamous concentration and elimination death camps.
Mattie lost everyone, everything, and still was forced to work for the Nazis, fifteen hours a day. It was hard to read, but worth the read. I believe that everyone should read this book and that people realize the inhumane treatment of others, just because they didn't fit the Nazi's beliefs.
It’s definitely un-put-downable! It is always an honor to read this author's books. This is a totally inspirational title.
