This book is effectively Hersh’s memoirs of persecution from the holocaust, and so it’s an incredibly interesting and heartwarming read. The author even included some photographs, which help to bring the story to life. Of course, the holocaust is something that we should never forget, and so any book which details a survivor’s experience is automatically likely to score high.
That said, the editing is of a high quality, and the book does look and feel professional. I’d hate to feel as though it was printed by a vanity press, because with something as unique as this, it really does deserve appropriate treatment and respect. Luckily, I think that Hersh has done the subject justice, and his family would have been proud. He’s doing lots of good work, and this is a great example of it.
