Reviews and Commentary for Mark It With a Stone

From Booklist , 04/15/96:
Horn’s horrifying ordeal began on September 2, 1939, when at age 12 he watched German bombers attack his home city of Radom, Poland. The ordeal ended on April 15, 1945, when Allied forces freed him from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. His parents and sister were killed in Treblinka, and his two brothers and two uncles also perished. Horn survived Auschwitz and six other concentration camps before being sent to Bergen-Belsen. In 1964 when he applied to the German restitution office for compensation, the court rejected his claim, ruling that since no human was capable of withstanding the experiences described, he must be lying. His memoir, Horn writes, “is my chance to point an accusing finger at my oppressors and to record what is indelibly marked in the inner recesses of my mind.”

The year was 1939. Twelve-year-old Joseph Horn was set to start school--but he never made it. Instead, he began an odyssey through one of the most barbarous atrocities in the history of mankind: the Holocaust. Horn survived Auschwitz. He survived Bergen-Belsen. Now, he says, “it is time for me to leave a record of the crimes I have seen.”
