I was never that unintelligent or completely brain-dead. Or at least I'd like to convince myself of that. It helps me get quality sleep at night.

Hey, Foo-son, glad that book made an impression. It did on me, as well. I have friends who survived Auschwitz (and a friend who grew up in and came from Oswiecim), among other camps, others who lived through it and worked with the Resistance, and others who fortunately escaped the Nazis altogether, including my late husband. If you're interested, I could suggest other books, some Holocaust-related, some related to gulags in the former USSR....

Lost a whole branch of my family to the camps. Not Jews though, Romany. Night is a very powerful book. The part about his father's death was painful to read.

You should go back and look at some of your earliest posts. You'd be stunned at the similarity
