  I read this book for a psychology class, and I soon began to enjoy it as much as my teacher did. Viktor Frankl takes you through he own experience in the concentration camps. Almost every year in history class we go over the horrendous dealings of the Holocaust, but this book gives details of how they coped. Frankl stated, “ With his loss of belief in the future, he also lost his spiritual hold; he let himself decline and became subject to mental and physical decay.” This quote truly stuck with me because if I were in the same position I do not know if I could have survived.  Now, it makes me wonder if I have a strong enough belief that I could have handled the pressure or broken down. If I were in that concentration camp starving, getting beaten, and losing hope it would not have looked well for me. Throughout the book I felt heartbroken about what these families went through. These families were separated, and they did not know if they would ever see each other again.  I would have been so scared if I was separated from my family. I would have felt so alone with these strange men yelling at me. I would have broken down crying.


I am currently a high school student who loves basketball, reading good books, and having fun. I listen to all kinds of music and enjoy spending time with family and friends. I live in Tennesse and have all my life.
