Summary note
In this true-life account of the Holocaust, author and lecturer Henry Oertelt retraces the harrowing sequence of events that forever changed his destiny. Henry links eighteen heart stopping incidents into the chain of his life. Had there been just one weak link, he would have been destroyed. Beginning as a youth in Hitler's Germany, the author relates his amazing existence in wartime Berlin, then his experiences in the concentration camps, eventually culminating in his liberation.--[book cover]
