Survival or . . .
One could look at the narration two ways - that the dull, flat tones she used were a reflection of the grim realities of the story, or that she was just reading with little animation. Anyway, some people would have lost interest. Still, every survivor account that I read reminds me that this horrendous chapter in history should be remembered. Her sufferings were nothing compared to those of the people in "Country of Ash", for example, yet she still suffered the loss of everything material and all her family; and, the oppression of being despised merely for the accident of being born a Jewess.

The story was deeply moving and heartbreaking. The narration made it hard to listen to. The narrator sounded like she needed a good cough and at times whiney.
