“I have thrown off the shackles that have held me prisoner since I was liberated from the concentration camps in Europe. At last I have complete freedom in body, mind, and soul. Sharing my story has helped me to put life into perspective. I am full of hope that Outcry - Holocaust Memoirs will help to honor and memorialize the millions of people who lost their lives in the ghettos, work camps, and concentration camps throughout Europe.” Born in 1925 in Radom, a city in east-central Poland, Manny Steinberg recounts his peaceful childhood that was horribly disrupted by the rise of anti-Semitism. Gradually life was becoming harsh for the Jewish community. But it was only the onset of a horrible time; World War II. By the time Manny reached the age of 13, he had to survive his teen years in Nazi concentration camps.
The writing in general is simple and easy to read. Manny Steinberg told his story from the heart and I appreciate his willingness to reminisce about both his wonderful and painful memories, sharing them with readers. These important life lessons and wisdom are delivered to the next generation. The inhumane acts of the Nazis were hard to read, but following Manny’s perseverance to pull through during those horrid times was uplifting. I was particularly happy when one German soldier showed young Manny and his family kindness. Sadly, the soldier was discovered and killed. Outcry - Holocaust Memoirs is another reminder for us to learn from the past and appreciate the life we have now. I’m happy for Manny and all the Jewish people who survived the Holocaust. All in all, a melancholy but inspiring read.
