That a Jew living in Nazi Berlin survived the Holocaust at all is surprising. That he was a homosexual and a teenage leader in the resistance and yet survived is amazing. But that he endured the ongoing horror with an open heart, with love and without vitriol, and has written about it so beautifully is truly miraculous. This is Gad Beck's story.

Book was a lot about his sexual life.
Not my cup of tea. I am not interested in reading about someone's sex life.
Had to stop and buy the book instead
Could not agree more with the review below saying that the narration of this book ruined the entire experience for them. Im only 1/2 an hour into the story and I cant take it.
Ive been completely distracted from Gads beautiful and charming story of his childhood growing up post war due to the terrible audio. The narrator mispronounces words, leaves large gaps before phrases in other languages so that its apparent that he is trying to work out how to say them. You can hear obvious page turning and places where the audio was stopped and interjected with audio from a different recording session. Inflections are all over the place making sentences not make sense and lose all meaning. I dont know how this got approved for sale to be honest.
I cannot continue listening to this especially given the importance of the story. So before I get Any deeper into the book Im off to buy the kindle version and read it instead.
Great Story - Horrendous Reading
Gad's story is great.
The performer's voice is grating to the nth degree.
As a speaker of German, Hebrew, and French, it was excruciating to me
to encounter each new mispronunciation.
Frankly, a superb story was ruined for me.
When foreign words are so integral a part of the story, one would hope that a narrator with integrity and a modicum of
self-respect would be hired.

Really enjoyable, detailed story of the author’s life in Nazi Germany. Looking forward to part two.
