The story is narrated by Jewish teenager, Eliezer who lives in Sighet. Later he gets captured and taken to Auschwitz and the nightmare begins. When they arrive, he gets separated from his family and gets put to work. Auschwitz gets evacuated and he goes on a brutal death march to another concentration camp. At the new camp the same torture happens and Eliezer is trying to survive so the inhumane treatment will stop. Finally when the camp gets liberated by America, Elizer is a void and has dealt with too much for being such a young boy. This book showed the heartbreaking reality of the holocaust. This book did a good job at showing how awful it would be to be in a concentration camp. This book will be a testament to why history should not repeat itself. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the history and the tragedies that come with it.
