I've read your captivating novel twice. Once, for me, because I was fascinated by the Holocaust, by how people could do such things. The second was for class. We had to write a reactionary paper on it. At first I was ecstatic, your gripping tale engrossed me, so of course writing a reactionary paper would be easy. Right? Wrong. For hours I sat before my computer, my fingers lingering over the keyboard. Once in a while, I would get an idea, type furiously for some time, and then stop. Not one part of what I wrote could even capture the reactions I had to your story. Your original message "as long as there is life, there is hope" was an obvious message in the novel, but I felt there was more to be gained from the novel. For example, the courage of your brothers, your mother, your friends, the determination each of you had. Every time I wrote something I felt that it had not conveyed the memory of what had happened properly. And I figured something out. What happened in the Holocaust could never be conveyed in pictures or words, only those who have experienced it will ever know the true horrors of the Holocaust. Only those who have the ink on their arms or the scars on their legs from hiding for years in fear will forever live with the torment and memories. I could never truly understand the courage and determination and hope that all of you had. The only thing I can do is thank you. Thank you for your courage. For your determination. For your hope. For your will and soul. And, lastly, for all you have done to spread the message, to make people aware, to give people voices. I thank you.

The hardest thing was being alone and not knowing what happen to my family.

Dear Mrs. Sender,
I was wondering what the hardest part of living during the Holocaust was??

Dear Mrs. Sender,
May God Bless all Holocaust survivor.
Those who have helped the Nazis and those who agree with all their horror and abominable doing, be brought to justice. Amen
