Description

This digital audiobook was created from the only remaining analog source and contains a slight tape hiss.

When Jacques Lusseyran was an eight-year-old Parisian schoolboy, he was blinded in an accident. He finished his schooling determined to participate in the world around him. In 1941, when he was seventeen, that world was Nazi-occupied France. Lusseyran formed a resistance group with fifty-two boys and used his heightened senses to recruit the best. Eventually, Lusseyran was arrested and sent to the Buchenwald concentration camp in a transport of two thousand resistance fighters. He was one of only thirty from the transport to survive. His gripping story is one of the most powerful and insightful descriptions of living and thriving with blindness, or indeed any challenge, ever published.

One of the three most important books in my life

I read this book for the first time about 30 years ago and subsequently visited the town of his boyhood, Jurvardeil. So much profound wisdom. I would recommend it to anyone, but especially teenagers who are struggling to find meaning and purpose in life.

Moving account

A powerful story well narrated. As much about the human capacity for understanding and compassion as it was a recounting of WWII. Unfortunate that it was abridged. The gaps left you wondering.

Beautiful

This is a beautiful story of a good man and his honest testimony. It has inspired and humbled me. If you, like myself, are yearning for some small ray of heaven's light to shine through the hellish evil of the holocaust, please listen to this.

Disappointed it was the Abridged Version

Disappointed that Audible only has the abridged version available. The book/story itself deserves 5 stars but Audible only having the abridged version available and it only being 4(ish) hours long is very disappointing for such a good book. I don’t recommend the abridged version of this story at all.

Prepare your heart for unalienable truths

I read this impressive book and then shared it with my husband as we listened to it on audible tape during a road trip. It is brimming with insights into human struggle of incredible depths. It offers the magnificent story of the author, but much more, it allows the reader/listener to examine his/her own unique story. Truly inspiring and a highly recommended reading.

Absolutely amazing

What an amazing man. I don't know what else to say. Words cannot express how much i recommend this title. The first horror story of ww2 suffering made beautiful.
Poetically told, dramatic, haunting, hopeful..
I would have loved to have met this writer.. Im sure i will in heaven.

Why abridge?

The author's perspective on the senses and how we "see" the world is vital. It enriches your life.
It is a just a shame that any abridgment was deemed necessary.
