It’s hard to believe that their was such cruelty placed on such lovely people. This story is told by an elderly man called Eddie Jacu. Beautifully written, with a moving humility it’s not full of hatred, it is filled with love and hope.
Each chapter is a story, lessons learned, a message for all and with a sense of humour. An easy read, easy to get into. You can feel the warmth of Eddie on each page.
A truly wonderful read.
From start to finish my emotions were a mix, angered from to being hopeful towards humanity.
This book has truly shown me what is to be hopeful and loving. The real human survival at the best.
Please read !
