Reise im AugustEr parents But as the train rolls on Alice begins to realize that just when you think things can't possibly get any worse they d There are so many books on the Holocaust and written in so many different ways This book takes that very short time span it took to transport a group of Jews from their home by train to AuschwitzIt moves a little slow but it adds to the discomfort you are feeling as you relive those long grueling hours they spent packed in train cars meant for transporting cattle You feel their hunger their pain their discomfort their confusion and fear and wonder about what lies ahead for them once they arrive at their destination When the trip finally comes to an end and they think their basic needs will be met with a shower and hot coffee they are separated; able bodied workers to the right women and children to the left We all know the ending from here I just wish I could have that moment back and let it all be a bad dream and watch Alice grow up and marry Paul and be reunited with her family The reality is too much grief for one person to bear
