5.0 von 5 Sternen Never forget... 14. Juni 2012
Von Doug DePew - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book months ago and kept it on my Kindle waiting for a time when I felt prepared to read it. I'm so glad I bought it. "Memoirs of a Holocaust Survivor: Icek Kuperberg" is a tremendous addition to the historical record. It was uplifting and heartbreaking at the same time. Mr. Kuperberg is a survivor. Listening to him tell all he went through to make it through the war was extremely moving. To hear the words of a man who survived Auschwitz and Buchenwald with not only his life but his spirit intact is something anyone who's a member of the human race can learn from. Seeing the way he used his talents, wits, and will to make it moved me.

I saw criticism in other reviews of the style. I must disagree strongly with that criticism. As the story progressed, I found myself hearing Mr. Kuperberg's voice talking to me. It was transcribed directly from tapes, and it's told the way he remembered it. Additional backstory or dialogue would make it seem contrived and fake. As it's written, it seemed authentic. It's told in his voice. Last night, I literally started hearing his voice in my head. That's when I knew it worked. I think it came across in a way that made the story very real. It's his story. The book was well edited and clear. It's just one man telling his story. It's a story that everyone should hear.

I thank him and everyone else who helped put this together. I recommend this book to anyone.

4.0 von 5 Sternen 5 Stars for the Man, 3.5 for the Memoir. 10. März 2012
Von Lincoln Rodman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This account gets additional stars from the minimum simply for being of value to the historical record, as are all factual accounts of Holocaust survivors.

The author is clearly an intelligent and resourceful man, but the writing style is definitely short and choppy, enough so that for the first quarter or third of the memoir it is difficult to gain traction.

After that point in the memoir, it becomes smoother and more gripping, probably because notable events are occurring closer together and thus more suited to the terse style which, at times, come across kind of like a police witness report or a cross examination.

Some of the survivor accounts are such extraordinary adventures (Vrba) or so unique and odd (Nyiszli) that there exist some nonfiction Holocaust narratives that are tough acts to follow. That said, this memoir is certainly of value and I recommend it if you are interested in covering as much historical ground as possible. It is a valid contribution to the survivors' commitment to "bearing witness."

What is most fascinating about this particular author and his story is how fiercely he fights, takes risks and goes against the grain to stay alive - rather than (as many did) become apathetic and trudge stoically to his death. Much has been written on how so many were so systematically broken down that they had no will defy orders. Even after years in the camps, this particular man would wait for one second's opportunity and scramble out of a group of condemened men to hide among the masses. Such acts of spontaneous initiative really seemed to be the exception to the rule among those who had been starved and worked to the point where the couldn't even remember ever having had initiative, let alone still possess it.

Von Debbie Whitman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I just finished reading this book, and I must say: it was such a gripping story...I could hardly put it down! It is incredible that Mr. Kuperberg survived it all..I know I would not have been able to...For a short book it was so powerful...so meaningful towards understanding just a fraction, what the Jews went through during WWII..I will never forget it, that's for sure...May God always be with you, Icek Kuperberg...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Memorable 9. November 2014
Von Gigi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Not your usual holocaust book, but definitely one you'll remember. I learned a lot from it, and I have read probably close to a hundred such books. It's not the typical "story" as it is a very detailed account of one man's determination to do whatever it took to stay alive. Naked roll calls, naked lashings, men being murdered for making themselves shoes. A straightforward account, as though your were listening to him tell you face to face. I recommend it as a change of pace; and, of course, so these horrors will never be forgotten.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Personal account of a tragic time 7. Juli 2011
Von K. Schonlau - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
These are the personal rememberances of Icek Kuperberg, who was captured in Poland in his teens and survived 10 concentration camps. This is not really a story in the true sense but rather Mr. Kuperberg's rememberances written in his later years.

He details how he volunteered for various jobs to get into the good graces of people who could help him get more food or freedom of movement. Kuperberg used his skills as a tinner and mechanic to make keys, wheelbarrows and install exhaust fans. He also helped deconstruct factories to create living space for additional inmates.

This is a story about survival and using the skills you possess or tools you have available to become more indispensable, henceforth, less likely to become food for the furnaces.

This is a very short book that I read in less than 2 hours. The writing is a bit choppy, as these rememberences were penned in Kuperberg's own words; and I think his son wanted the book composed this way. Good personal account of a tragic moment in history.
