This book is the moving story story of Henry Oertelt, a Holocaust survivor Reflecting on that period in his life, Oertelt realizes that there are eighteen key factors that contributed to his survival The book is clearly written, and, while affecting, it manages to avoid sentimentality I found that interesting given the topic.

  11. So far this book is decent, it s very interesting to learn about the things that Henry went through when in the Holocaust I like it also because it relates to what we re learning and it relates to things that I am interested in I don t like this book because it is a lot of repetition and the author often expresses his feelings in a similar way all the time Overall it is a good read, there a just a lot of parts that are boring and repetitive.

  12. My father was lucky enough to know this man for many years, and his story has stuck with me since I read it years ago I am sad I was not able to meet Henry before he passed, but this is a powerful memoir I highly recommend it He had hopes for his story to make it to film, and it finally has Becoming Henry is shown at festivals around the country it s one of my goals to view it some day.

  13. I am so glad I read this book As a memoir, it was not particularly well written But as a means through which many people can get a vivid glimpse of the experience of those most immediately and profoundly impacted by the Holocaust, it was perfect.
