Description

Riveting and compelling, The Wall tells the inspiring story of forty men and women who escape the dehumanizing horror of the Warsaw ghetto. John Hersey's novel documents the Warsaw ghetto both as an emblem of Nazi persecution and as a personal confrontation with torture, starvation, humiliation, and cruelty-a gripping and visceral story, impossible to put down.

This is one of the most important books I have ever read. I read this as a young adult and it taught so much about taking my advantages for granted and appreciating the little things.
