    Initially I was surprised how well written this book was given the circumstances of its unfortunate author. As I read on I became less surprised as the beautifully logged accounts of Solomons life unfolds, which was a contrast to the terrible conditions he was withstanding. A great book if you truly wish to be made aware of the atrocities that occurred at that time, and unfortunately today in some parts of the world. God Bless Solomun x
