“A great book that has been translated from the German original which in places may seem a bit cluncky but that will be due in part to the translation.
This book is written about event in Belgium during the events leading up to, including and the aftermath of the 20th transport of Jews to Auschwitz.
Where 3 young brave men stopped the transportation of the train and enabled 250 Jews to escape the death train. It also tells of how they were ratted out and by who to their deaths at the hands of the Gestapo.
It also lists all those people transported from Belgium at the back of the book. Some may complain that the book does not grab you. It is not intended too, this is the record of a little known event that needs better publicity. We must also remember we have a duty not to forget all those that perished. But this book shows that even in the depths of darkness the light can still get through, and where that light is then there is hope.”
