|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".|
