Product Description

Review

"I read this book…in a single day; I found it so compelling it was hard to put down." - Simon Wiesenthal

"An important contribution to bring out the facts about the cruelty of Nazi Germany, and heroic efforts for the survival of our brethren." Menachem Begin

"An adventure…almost novelesque in the extraordinary succession of miracles which enable the young man to remain among the living" - Claude Lanzmann, producer of Shoah

Product Description

I Shall Live tells the gripping true story of a Jewish family in Germany and Russia as the Nazi party gains power in Germany. When Henry Orenstein and his siblings end up in a series of concentrations camps, Orenstein's bravery and quick thinking help him to save himself and his brothers from execution by playing a role in the greatest hoax ever pulled on the upper echelons of Nazi command.Orenstein's lucid prose recreates this horrific time in history and his constant struggle for survival as the Nazis move him and his brothers through five concentration camps. His description of their roles in the fake Chemical Commando sheds new light on an incredible and generally unknown event in the history of the Holocaust. This edition of I Shall Live contains new evidence about this false Commando, including letters signed to and from Himmler himself.

This book was more than factual events written on paper it was an unforgettable experience. I call this book an experience, not a story because I will never forget the pain and suffering described so clearly. While I read the book I would sometimes ask myself, "why am I reading something so disturbing". The answer is because of the realizations I came to about people and life. I feel more than ever grateful for my life and safety of my love ones. I feel fear of the fact that life can take that safety away against my will. I feel in awe at the miracle of Mr. Orensteins survival and therefore, a small relief to know that humans have the ability for suffering and trauma to be overcome against all odds.

Thank you to Mr. Orenstein for having the courage to remember and share your experiences.

Well written book and a must read in my mind if you truly want to understand the truth of this part of history and life. The author has my total respect, wish I had the opportunity to give him a hug. Disheartening to have to admit that people can be this cruel. Jim
