    I found this memoir to be uite lacking and very shallow It's basically just a summary of the author's life without the specific detailed incidents that make memoirs memorable It's short only 150 pages and of those only about 100 are about Birger's life during the Holocaust The final section where the author talks about his career in Israel was a mistake who cares about that?In the introduction Birger says there is a lot he still can't bring himself to write about because it's just too painful In a telling detail he said his war experiences so traumatized him that immediately after the war virtually overnight he completely forgot how to speak Lithuanian I think perhaps that although he wanted his story known he just wasn't ready to do it justice
