Heartbreaking It s an overwhelming chronicle of man s evil and endurance It s a little different in style from any other biography that I ve read There is a great emphasis on his feelings at any given moment and how they are building up from catastrophe to catastrophe Mostly it s done through a series of flashbacks that are overwhelming It s a hard to read about what is happening at any given time but to have that layered with the guilt and fear he feels about what is past is even harder Then he also tells you right from the beginning who won t make it again when he sees them for the last time he tells you how they are going to die and then runs through the list again at the end It s brutal in sections and definitely for mature audiences but I do really appreciate that he didn t include a bunch swearing The language is clean Trivial Complaints read There is a great emphasis on his feelings at any given moment and how they are building up from catastrophe to catastrophe Mostly it s done through a series of flashbacks that are overwhelming It s a hard to My Philadelphia Father read about what is happening at any given time but to have that layered with the guilt and fear he feels about what is past is even harder Then he also tells you Eduardo Aronica Brooklyn Gambino Soldier right from the beginning who won t make it again when he sees them for the last time he tells you how they are going to die and then De Munich à la Libération. 1938-1944 runs through the list again at the end It s brutal in sections and definitely for mature audiences but I do Essays Biographical Critical and Historical IIlustrative of the Rambler Adventurer Idler and of the Various Periodical Papers Volume 1 really appreciate that he didn t include a bunch swearing The language is clean

Europe was a powder keg with a short fuse during the Second World War Everyone knew that war will soon start but what about the Jews gypsies gays and other undesirables Leap into Darkness by Leo Bretholz tells a chilling and nail biting story about a young Jewish boy and his ventures across Europe You see this story is not an ordinary Holocaust story because young Leo Bretholz never went to any of the camps Instead he escaped his fears and his enemies Hearing the boy s story tells readers what it was really like in war torn Europe This story that I had read had caught my attention because it s unlike most holocaust memoirs The author Leo Bretholz doesn t actually go to any of the concentration camps instead he is constantly on the run in search for safety I m sure that I will never end up his place but I have a deep personal connection with Leo Bretholz The way he reasons his reactions to events all are actions that I know I would take Along with this my own reactions to parts of the story are exactly what Leo explains I found myself nodding my head as I turned the next page after finishing a chapter The shock that I had in the beginning was different though Leo Bretholz wrote the book years after the events so his tone at times was the opposite in the beginning When Leo describes one of his uncles in the beginning of the story he first mentions that he had gone to Dachau on the morning of the second day of the Anschluss Bretholz 25 Reading this at the start of the book really sets the melancholy tone for the rest of the book which I find important in order to understand Leo and his story That and reading the beginning gave me the oh it s that kind of book feeling Leo Bretholz first leaves his home and his family at the age of seventeen on October 25 1938 A well thought out plan taking Leo into Luxemburg ends up becoming harder when a week of gray skies and rain causes the Danube River to become deep and dangerous Once he was in Luxemburg he was caught and sent into the French border For the rest of the story nearly every single one of the events that Leo is caught up in was not planned at all save for a few here and there and Leo begins his true journey one of risk and uncertainty Leo later on gets to Belgium with a group of other Jews on their way there they witness Kristallnacht the night of the broken glass During one of the most chilling moments in the story Leo finds himself in a cattle car surrounded by others as he heads to Auschwitz No one in this day in age really knows what it s like in those disgusting boxes on rails so to read the boy s personal account of that car opened my eyes as much as it disgusted me During that moment the Leo Bretholz mentioned that the stench in the car filled our lungs and we struggled not vomit Some were unsuccessful The vomit clung to clothing and then the air became worse Where is God someone cried Bretholz 166 After I had read this I pondered for hours about that one scene I began to uestion reality I began to uestion the Nazis and most of all I began to uestion humanity itself Moments like this are everywhere in this book and the fact that this had happened to someone makes me sick to my stomach knowing that there are people out in the world that just want to burn it down Too harsh Read the book first then come back to this then So why exactly did I rate the story 4 stars This book doesn t have the flow that most books have I absolutely loved this book it s just that the story was one event after another and another I m sure the author had a hard time writing it since it happened so many years ago I understand that writing those stories is hard when it s not as fresh as it was but the book doesn t have the dialogue or the action The book only has the events in order and what happened in between the author was only a commentator of his own story Each event doesn t lead to the next the events just happen In real life the events most likely had randomly happened too but reading it was a little hard to keep up Even though each character was uniue there were a ton of important characters in the story Every character had to be remembered because they all played a role in Leo s survival There was Uncle David and his son Kurt and Leon and Heinz that Nazi who I guess just never realized Leo was a Jew and the Spiras and the Frajermauers and Lebon and Aunt Erna and Manfred and of course Becker I almost forgot him Leap into Darkness is a decent and respectable story Period It just has a few flaws in between the lines but there isn t such thing as a perfect story Leo s life during these 7 years is something that many others must have gone through during this time and the fact that most people in the present don t ever realize this is very disappointing My personal connections are what kept me glued to the pages and I hope the book will cause the same to you I absolutely loved this book and I would recommend it for any history lovers or anyone who loves action and suspense This is one of those books everyone should read at least once because it sets a perspective for people about the war that I think everyone should be
