I am not sure which part of the book I should talk about first the suspense the drama or the horrifying accounts of torment during this time The way the author told their life story during the war it terrified me and made the idea of prison seem like heaven but I was not able to just put down this page turner as you never knew when peace would turn into violence or vice versa Leo Bretholz personal memoir Leap into Darkness shows us the terrible effects that fear anger and a want for genocide have had on people living in a war torn world Bretholz himself takes us back in time to view the Holocaust through his eyes and experience the horrors that very few survived to tell about it Leo Bretholz is a German Jew who was raised in Vienna Austria He is also a Holocaust survivor with an incredible story He writes about his love for his family his families deaths at camps scattered across Europe as well as his personal escape from a moving train heading to perhaps the most infamous concentration camp in all of Europe Auschwitz Living in the world we live in today it sadly reminds me of the war in the middle east and the persecution of innocent people for nothing than religion gender and even political views And just as it resulted in Europe the groups responsible for this prejudice have begun a war that has engulfed several nations What Leo experienced during the Holocaust tested him mentally and is something that almost none of us could picture happening to us hopefully it doesn t This book opened my eyes when I was reading it as Leo freuently mentioned the negative effects of prejudice and how no one can win with that kind of strategy While many people have used prejudice to bring others down we all know it usually never works out When people use prejudice it is most often used to talk about someone or something they think is abnormal or less deserving than themselves In this case Leo is viewed as the lesser by Germans for his religion but in almost every reality he is just like them Many parts of his life have been lived by the Germans He went to school with Germans he was friends with Germans he was neighbors with Germans and his parents were friends with Germans There was only one small difference between the two groups that resulted in an outbreak of an entire World War and that was his religion Almost instantaneously past friends began turning on his family because they were Jewish I thought that the most fascinating part was people were observant enough to tell the difference between Jews and Germans in this book as they acted so similar Leo himself was confused about the situation as he pondered the uestion he finally asked his uncle How do they know we re Jewish We act just like them Bretholz 106 The Germans began a mass genocide over people that were just like them After I read this book I now know that Leo was the most German out of all the Soldiers and of this novel He showed that because he is Jewish he is still strong he bravely showed that his Star of David is symbolic of bravery and perseverance than a Swastika stitched on a uniform of a German soldier or draped from a flag While Leo and his family are being assaulted in Austria they begin to notice that people in Vienna are beginning to go missing one of these people is Leo s uncle Isidore Unfortunately just like thousands of other people they did not think much about these disappearances and it ultimately led to the deaths of millions of Jews In addition to not paying attention to the signs they also underestimated the Nazi regime and guessed it would not last How wrong they were Bretholz admits We still assumed Hitler wouldn t last He would go away if we simply minded our own business Bretholz 23 Leo and his family all witnessed Adolf Hitler himself speak about his Reich just outside their home Assuming that he was a crazy politician with radical ideas they would have no idea of the plan that he had for them They underestimated a powerful man and didn t realize that their own family would be among the first to be shipped out As for this memoir I would definitely give it five out of five stars Everything about this memoir was excellent The writer s tone and voice was superior it was very easy to tell that this memoir was clearly written from deep personal emotions I loved the way the book had almost no pauses or unnecessary information to delay the plot and divert the reader And it opened my eyes about the real things that happened during the holocaust Bretholz personal account shows a dark side of world history that few have survived to tell about It is a truly inspiring piece of writing about the struggles fears and perseverance during perhaps the darkest point in human history Bretholz created an amazing novel with the ability to hook any reader with an interest in WW2 or European history His inspiring memoir is a statement of history and I hope this is on everyone s list of books to read

Seventeen year old Leo Bretholz was a Jewish boy from Vienna whose life changed dramatically when the Nazis occupied Austria in 1938 He spent the next seven years staying one step ahead of the Nazis as they tried to completely wipe out the entire Jewish population of Europe This book tells Leo s story Written with co author Michael Olesker he tells of his plight as he initially escapes to Luxembourg by swimming the river Sauer out of Germany then his tale takes us to Belgium occupied and Vichy France During his time on the run he escapes two German transports one of which was taking him directly to Auschwitz the Nazi death camp For Leo to survive it took determination intelligence and a strong survival instinct but most of all it took extraordinary luck I don t think any book about the Holocaust can completely get across the fear the victims felt at being subjected to such madness or the continuing impact it would have on the lives of those that survived Also it is hard to get our heads around the terrible guilt many Holocaust survivors felt because they survived and most of their family perished I think it would be hard not to be affected by the subject and hopefully repelled by what human beings are capable of doing to each other However this is not a book that leaves you depressed and dejected about humanity Ultimately this is a book about the triumph of the spirit and in my view is well worth reading
