On 15th September 1939 the Orenstein family of Hrubieszow, Poland, joined the stream of refugees fleeing the German army. For the next six years the lives of this once-prosperous Jewish family were to be an almost inconceivable nightmare of cramped waterless hideouts, betrayals by their Polish neighbours, beatings, concentration camps, brutal forced marches, and finally, for some, murder. Their story is movingly told by Henry, the youngest son, who survived the war through intelligence, luck, bravery, and determination to live. As well as the ordeals and horrors of the holocaust he also describes his life in pre-war Poland: the satisfactions of academic success, thrashing the school bully, and his mother's cooking, as well as the indignities of assaults, taunts, and Jewish quotas in schools, and the ever-present fear of pogroms.

What a moving and important story. I feel that every High School kid on the planet should read this book to learn not just about History but about the human spirit. Some spoilers in the review but I feel they are important; also sorry for length of review in advance!

There are tragic depths followed by triumphs as you read this amazing autobiography. I have watched quite a few documentary films and read many books by Holocaust survivors. I really feel this is right up there with "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor Frankl....it is deep, spiritual and very brutal.

There are definitely some gruesome and horrific parts in this book that are painful to read. However, it is a story that needs to be told so that it isn't forgotten.

The story is written by a man who as a teen grew up in Poland at a time when WWII was just beginning. He came from a loving and successful family and was for all purposes having a fairly good childhood. This changed as the Axis powers invaded Poland and his life changes from bad to worse to much much worse. He is forced to hide, flee, then is imprisoned in a variety of concentration camps that continue to get even more hellish. He is trying desperately to keep his family together and find some avenue of escape. When escape is impossible he is forced to survive as best he can.... and a surprise Chemical Commando unit comes to his rescue in a mysterious and unexpected way.

Mr. Orenstein is honest and straightforward. He describes this through the eyes of a teen aged boy, but with the vocabulary and insights of his adult self. In some ways this book can compare to "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl" insomuch that we see and feel the universal teen age problems that we are all familiar with but combined into a very compelling and dark event in history.

There is also humor and uplifting aspects to this story that are vitally important as well. The author tells us about a neighbor lady who (he tutored her children) bravely assists his family in escaping one dark night. Actually she helps hide him and his siblings hide for days, secretly feed them, then helps them escape the area twice! She does this at great risk to herself and her own family. Also, there are stories of other good people who help him and others during this time, usually when all hope is lost.

I read this at a time when I felt frustrated with my job, friends and family. This book helped me feel appreciative of what I have, and also see that even when things are bad that there are still good people out there waiting to save the day like an unexpected Angel from the sky. On a different note, this book has many historical tidbits that are great in themselves if you are a history buff. Also, many things are tied together that I had previously studied and I really got an appreciation for the research work that went into writing this book.

Lastly this book gives us a look at what it is to have to survive and what things are worth fighting for and resisting to the bitter end. The things that Mr. Orenstein and his family had to do to survive are not only heartbreaking but also show how resourceful and strong the human spirit is. It sounds sort of sappy but honestly it is amazing what strength we have when we are forced to reach inside and delve deep to use it.

I read quite a lot of books but this book is easily in my top 25 of must read books. I'm going to get my daughter and granddaughter to read this in hopes that they learn more about not just history but the human capacity for good and evil.

This book was very hard to put down. The way he writes makes you feel like you are right there experiencing he whole thing!. I will read this again and again. Very interesting to note that the author has become a successful American inventor inventing many things that have become very popular in the U.S.! Highly recommended book about the courage persevere in the face of incredible odds..what a horrible thing that was done to those people during WW2..

I have read numerous books re the holocaust, but this is the first that I have read that tracks an entire family beginning with freedom to the death of some family members. It is a heart-felt, hear-breaking story of fear, loyalty, love of family and the sacrifices they made in their attempts to remain alive and together. Orenstein gives the reader a personal glimpse into his feelings of running, hiding, hoping and fearing not just for himself, but for his family. He paints a vivid picture of hiding atop a hay stack, inside fake walls, seeing his parents led off to be shot by the Nazis and life inside the various concentration camps where he, his brothers and sister were sent. He gives a very honest insight into how many of Poles thought about Jews during and after World War II, and he does not gloss over the fact that there were some Jews who cast their lot with the Nazis. This is not a book for the faint of heart, but it is one that I have recommended to others and shall read several times. How the author has managed to hopefully shed the horrors of concentration camps and become a successful businessman who is intent upon helping others is astounding!.

When I first started reading this book I was a little apprehensive about continuing because I feared that a lot of pretty gruesome stories ahead. And there were. But I am so happy I continued. This is one of the best, most triumphant books I have read. It follows Polish Jewish family through great loss and then freedom for some of the children. They were the father and mother, Lejb and Golda; Fred (Niuniek), Felek, Sam (Shlojme) and Henry, the author of this book; and the one daughter, Hanka, the youngest.

In the early part of WW II they moved a lot trying to escape Nazi capture but, eventually, they were arrested and taken to a series of different concentration camps. Three of the brothers, Fred, Sam and Henry, survived and made it to freedom. Fred was a doctor so the Nazis kept him alive because they needed his skills. San and Henry made it by a combination of a lot of luck and Henry's daring exploits.

If you are at all interested in WW II; the horrors the Nazis committed, not just to Jews but to many other Eastern Europeans, and even to some Germans; the unbelievable strong will to live that humans possess; and the enormous feeling of joy on reaching freedom, then you must read this book.

When I finished this book I immediately started reading Ruth Gruber's book, "Haven: The Dramatic Story of 1,000 World War II Refugees and How They Came to America. It is a perfect follow-on to "I Shall Live."

Oh no! not another holocaust book. But this memoir was incredibly vivid and touching.This young man used his wits and saved himself and other members of his family. The book is simply written and flows very smoothly.

Another refreshing aspect was that he never lost his verve through his very long life. He went on to be an entrepeneur, inventor and philanthropist.I am sorry not to have read more about his life in the United States.
