The Moon Was My Witness Review



MarksvilleandMe reviews
The Moon Was My Witness
the Jewish boy who sabotaged the SS commander's motorcycle
written by 
Abraham Levy

Having always said that stories, movies, etc about the Holocaust have been my favorite, I have changed my wording to fascination with the subject rather then favorite. Not sure if sounds better, but thought it fit better. 

Even though this book is called the Jewish boy who sabotaged the SS commander's motorcycle, I believe that the title "The Moon Was My Witness" fits much better. Don't get overly excited about a story revolving around the SS commander's motorcycle because that is a very small part in this book about Abraham's fight to live through the Holocaust. 

This will take you on a journey through his memories of his family, life as child, life in the camps during the Holocaust as well as a brief glimpse into his life 60 years after Liberation. What I find the same in most of the surviving camp Holocaust people is their will to survive from the very beginning. A force that kept them moving forward no matter how hard things got. 

I speak all of the time about how God gives me breath each day but the stories of the Holocaust survivors always reminds me that life can always be worse, the stories also give me hope and strength to continue on my own journey through life, no matter what is thrown my way. The suffering of those from the holocaust is a constant reminder of the strength of the humane soul

As with many books with this subject matter I read this in one sitting in only a few hours. A page turner for sure, filled with lots of information. The life the Holocaust victims and survivors has is something everyone needs to remember so that it will never happen again.

You can purchase "The Moon Was My Witness" on Amazon.
