Sad stories of survivors from a part not often told. But the writing is not very compelling and, hard to believe, but also boring.

Misleading description of the book. Do not expect any real information about what happened in Auschwitz. Probably made that way to appeal to a wider audience, but it loses its horror when you don't actually know what happened.
