Very quickly this book became difficult to read; the reason being that this is a true story about a real man who was forced to scar the bodied of people just like him, with a number that would become their only form of identity. Every part of this book really happened – & trust me, that’s very hard to swallow. Despite how much this book broke my heart, it also reassured me that things weren’t all bad for all of the people stuck in concentration camps, & that some were able to find happiness in small doses.
I was sent an eARC of this book by Zaffre in return for an honest review.
This book contains human suffering, Jewish & Romani slurs, rape, death & other war-related themes.
