I have purchased many copies for not only myself, but for my friends. When I first read this book, it was just like the author was speaking ... his writing speaks, and steps right off the pages. Amazing recount of his personal accounts of the holocaust. Tragic, and one of the best books I have read on personal accounting of this horrible part of our world's history. God bless him...

Found out about this book when the author passed away. He had lived in my hometown of Rapid City, SD and I never knew it. For anyone whose ever actually toured Dachau, Auschwitz, or Bergen Belsen, it will deepen your understanding.

Great book. Personal experience from a concentration camp escapee. Too bad it is out of print.

Anyone that is a WWII buff will enjoy this. As my father was born in The Netherlands & came over at the age of 7 just before the start of WWI, I was particularly interested in this & enjoyed it tremendously! Buying this book through Amazon was easy, convenient & well priced.

I was fortunate enough to hear Mr. Van der Geest speak about his experiences growing up with the Nazi's invading his home, the activities he and his peers undertook in their own efforts to thwart them from taking away their canned goods to the sinking of their own boats to keep them from the Hitler Youth that took them over. To hear him speak about what is in this book only made it that much more powerful. I purchased the second edition 1999 from him in November 2001, and his signature said it all - "Enjoy your "Freedom"."
To hear of the long lasting physical effects he endured cannot be accurately conveyed, but he did it in a manner that was engaging, especially how his wife was always telling him when he needed to put a coat on since he could no longer feel the cold after having been pushed into a vat of ice water in one of the labs he was forced to work in.
Absolutely a must read, I could not put it down.
