The Holocaust is a period of history of which I have some prior knowledge as my schools have taught me about World War Two and the Holocaust. However not only did I learn about the Holocaust in school, outside of school it was also easy to continue learning and widening the spectrum. The tales of experiences of the Holocaust, both in the concentration camps and trying to escape the fate of the camps, are in a variety of mediums and are not only exposed in documentary or textbook form, but also in books, like the work Survival in Auschwitz and Anne Frank’s Dairy; movies, like Schindler’s list and Life is Beautiful; and graphic novels, like Maus. Compelling tales that, despite all look into the Holocaust with different views and perspectives, personalizes the horrors, fears, and survival nature of the Holocaust rather than looking at World War Two more clinically with statistics and dates. Which no matter when I’ve been exposed, all of which are stories I remember today. And in addition to learning about World War Two and the Holocaust in schools and from other media, there are also many monuments and museums around the world that further knowledge of the period and life in the camps and outside the camps. I enjoyed the book. “The Journey” as the first chapter gives the readers an entrance into the camp with Levi. The use of jumping from him and his own thoughts to observations of families and people around him paint a picture of what it was like. This was particularly a good way as the pictures of the different reactions stitched together gave a feel for the story ahead, as everyone went to the camps together, but all went differently (some packing and preparing, some praying, some drinking). The first chapter brings not only Levi, but the reader, into the unknown as Levi travels to an unknown foreign place. The book looks at the Holocaust in a different light that is interesting and makes it stand out from other stories. Though I feel as though all the stories I’ve watched/read/listened to, were all different and went on to depict different aspects of human nature and what it means to be human.
