Priestblock 25487 tells the gripping true story of his survival amid brutality, degradation and torture. This book was made into the award-winning film "The Ninth Day"

A Must Read for Students of WWII  May 20, 2008
This book brings the reader into the daily life of a priest who was imprisoned for speaking out against the Nazis. The cruelty and drudgery of camp life is vividly detailed in this diary and one cannot help but feel the reality of the events documented so well by Fr. Bernard.

Of interest to those who are interested in the role of the Church during this time are the sections where life in the camp becomes harder for the priests when the Pope or a bishop publishes a percieved anti Nazi letter or sermon. This real life witness counters those trendy academic claims of Church complicity.

Very uplifting. A page-turning eye witness account full of tragedy but also inspiration. The kind of book I couldn't put down.
Everything a book should be  Mar 24, 2008

I highly recommend this book because it is beautifully, clearly, sparsely written, speaks to us of our strengths and our weaknesses as humans, tells a story of human beings facing severe treatment and dealing with it in so many varied ways, and relects the beauty of the priesthood in its concentration on the centrality of the Eucharist in their lives. Those moments are captured so purely, it raises all of our spirits to read it, to enter their world, even with unimaginable depravity, Christ was the purpose of their lives. An amazingly uplifting book, after I resisted reading it for fear of the depression I would feel from it's subject. I couldn't have been more wrong. I am passing to all my friends.
The heroic witness of a modern martyr  Mar 22, 2008
When we think of martyrs, we normally think of those who have died for the faith. However, the Church also holds the concept of white martyrdom, those who have suffered but have not died. Fr. Bernard exemplifies both, because through his suffering he was at the jaws of death so many times. This is truly a gripping memoir, and a chilling account of the depths to which man's inhumanity to man can sink. Yet the focus is not solely on brutality endured, but rather on how faith and love overcome it. It is the story of a man who truly endured the physical suffering of Christ, and in the midst of it all, was able to bring the presence of Christ to many he encountered. It is chilling to remember, but it is better to never forget.
The Power of Forgiveness  Mar 11, 2008
Simply, but beautifully written. An amazing eye for detail, and ability to breathe life into characters and situations. Heartfelt, deeply moving. At times shocking in its violence, but never gratuitously so. It grabbed me from the first page, and did not let go. As one reviewer mentioned, you feel the cold, the hunger, the fear. But what most lingers in my mind after reading this powerful book are the author's words in the Foreword:

''We must never forget what happened there and in many similar places. Forgetting would be cowardice on the part of the people in whose name all these crimes were committed. It would be a flight from their own consciences and from the indictment of the world, showing an unwillingness to make reparations and to atone.

Yet we must forgive. We must forgive while remaining conscious of the full horror of what occurred, not only because nothing constructive can be built on a foundation of hatred--neither a new Europe nor a new world--but above all for the sake of Him who commands and urges us to forgive, and before whom we, victims and executioners alike, are all poor debtors in need of mercy.''

This is a great book, an important book. I highly recommend it.
