I knew Harry Gordon personally for many years prior to his death in 2010. I like to think I was one of the many people who encouraged him to write a book about his experiences. I had gotten a personal hard copy book from Harry back in 1992 which had been loaned out so many times that I feared I would not get the it back. I was very happy to see that copies of the book were still available. This book will be circulated through our granddaughters who are now old enough to realize how lucky they are with the life they lead today and at the same time get some first hand history of the holocaust.

Although this book is not of high quality literary-wise, it is very interesting. As a reader you get a realistic glimpse of how life in the Lithuanan Jewish gettho's was during WWII. I was shocked to find out that not only Germans, but Lithuanians and Poles too were involved in mass-killings of innocent people. 'The shadow of death' is a very suitbale titel, because that is exactly how the jewish people must have felt: living in the shadow of death.

History of War World II in a country that truly faced a very different situation. Placed between two fronts, Lithuania seem to have a history of it's own.

Another good book to learn how fore fathers dealt with the Holocaust even if they weren't Jewish. A must read
  • Vivaral
A gut-retching true story that everyone needs to hear. I am so happy that Harry Gordon had the courage to recount, what was for him, the worst time of his life. We are all better for it.

Absolutely fantastic book!!
Anyone who is of Lithuanian desent should read this and see how their ancestors were treated years ago. The Jewish people suffered in the Holocaust, but so did other nationalities. We just don't hear about it.
This book is a short and easy read, but full of incredible facts.
