Excellent livre du début à la fin. J'ai adoré.
Ok, whoever added this book to their to-read shelf because I recommended it should remove it for several reasons: Firstly whoever Binjamin Wilkomirski is what he had done is insulting to the real Holocaust victims and survivors. I don't like hoaxes and instead of implying it's his own story he could've simply done a first-person-narration, with a child named Binjamin as the narrator. And what's more annoying is that I believed in the story so completely till yesterday. It seems that the investigations later discovered that 'Binjamin Wilkomirski' was not a real Holocaust survivor but a man who was obsessed with the Holocaust and read thousands of memoirs and decided to create his own identity for whatever the reason was (hmm...money, may be)! And I am sorry that that this author felt that he needed to lie, it seems he had given a great opportunity for the Holocaust deniers to seize the opportunity to discredit the real survivors. The book contains horrifying disturbing images and events, so bad I had to skip the parts and I was shocked I didn't know "such things" ever happened and perhaps we didn't because we added them without research just using his imagination. I can't like the book despite the powerful depiction about a child survivor of the Holocaust. I believe these survivors were ordinary people who were caught up in terrifyingly extraordinary events. Every story is different but no one pretended to be something they were not because that'll be deceiving. No one at GoodReads community should shelf this under memoirs or autobiographies. It should be under FICTION.
