    I was so looking forward to reading of Cilka s Journey to find out her story of how she came to be in Auschwitz.To say her journey was a traumatic one is an understatement,no one can really know what these people went through unless you walk in their shoes.Cilka has so many friends in the camp in russia and they support each other but there is always one bad egg and cilka is the victim of this womans hate.Cilka starts work in the camp hospital and becomes close to Dr Yelina who allows cilka to train as a nurse,the patients are treated with love and care by cilka and this is noticed when twice cilka and the dr save the life of the camp commandants daughter.I have really loved cilka s Journey which i think is worth than 5 well done to Heather Morris.

    I read this book in a day I loved The Tattooist of Auschwitz, also reading it in a day I could not wait to get my hands on this book and hoped it lived up to my expectations and it certainly did I could not put this book down Like The Tattooist of Auschwitz, I felt like I was walking beside Cilka, sharing all of her experiences with her, and constantly willing her on Heather Morris knows how to suck you in to the story As a woman, I felt the initial chapters were tough to read but it is important to recognise the horrors of what these women were made to experience What a story of hope, grit and determination and another book for the ages Heather Morris makes you feel that there is hope in the most hopeless of situations A beautiful story, beautifully written that I would recommend to anyone Like The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Cilka s Journey is a book that I will keep forever.

    Cilka.whst a girl what a womanSurvival was all she had.it was her strength to live and live a life in hell that made her strong.along with millions of others in the same situation.i cant begin to imagine the hell on earth that these brave people lived for many yrs.but we must never forget either.the next generations must be shown what horrors the past generations were capable of.can it happen again yes and its up to us to prevent it.No human has the right to inflict the horrors of these war crimes on onother human no matter there race.colour religion.my heart goes out to the millions who suffered at the cruelty of men and women who thought they ruled the world.never again can it be allowed to happen.

    I imagined this tale would have been a work of non fiction Perhaps I missed it on the book s landing page on .I really didn t like the ongoing flashbacks, might have worked in a screenplay movie but certainly not in a book Far better to have built the character s pre war and during Auschwitz Birkenau, this would have made the injustice and transition to incarceration by the Russians of a stark contrast.Shame, this sequel really didn t work on many levels.

    Really enjoyed reading the first book and was eagerly awaiting this follow up Amazing book many late nights reading this to always find what next.Would highly recommend this book and feel sure will read it again in the future.

    The perfect sequel to the Tattooist of AuschwitzCompelling reading and very moving

    A novel, novel but if your interested in actual facts, there are much better books on the market covering this topic.Marketed as a true story, this book treads a very fine line under the trades description act.

    After reading the tattooist of aushwitz, which I thought was brilliant, I was wanting to read cilka s journey to get an even bigger picture to the degree of human endeavour I loved the story but was very disappointed to discover that the author never even met cilka I made the mistake of thinking it was a true story but cannot now work out the fact from fiction and that has led to my dropped rating Would not have read it if I had realised it wasn t a totally true story in the sense of the word.

    Such a sad story she suffered so much unjustly by evil people

    I did enjoy reading this book and had seen the author on BBC talking about her research So I was very disappointed to find at the end that it appears that all the author really knew about Cilka is that she went to the Gulag for 10 years and then lived with her husband in Poland for 50 years It seems the entire story is fictional I was expecting a large part fact with the gaps weaved together with fiction I feel it does Cilka a dis service to just make up this story about her and should have been written as a fictional novel inspired by the story of Cilka, which is what it really is.

    In August 2019 I visited Auschwitz Birkenau prior to this trip I read many survivor s stories each book was one of horror and courage, desperation and inspiration the worst of human nature and the best of human nature The book that really resonated as I walked around that place of horror and murder was Heather Morris s Tattoist of Auschwitz and like many readers of that book I was eager to read Cilkas Journey The book did not disappoint and it introduced me to horrors that I was only vaguely aware of Soviet Gulags I applaud all the authors who help to keep these terrible atrocities in the minds of future generations we must never forget what happened Thank you Heather Morris

    There are a number of world war books reflecting the torture and death sufferred by a people purely based on their religious belief s or skin colour this still goes on today in greater or lesser degree slome of it per petrated by the West.Having read The Tattoist , Cilka s journey was the natural sequel Its a pity the author did not see Cilka bjut that is life The poor woman suffers a double whammy first with the Germans and then with the Russians Its so well written I just could nt stop, reflect and think Should have won the Booker.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was another fantastic read cilka sounded like a great woman, and she went through an awful lot in her life, she was very brave, it must ve been a horrifying experience, to start with in the first camp, then end up in another that wasn t that much different from the first She did what she needed to survive, and shouldn t have been punished for it But she would never have found her husband and felt real love it if hadn t been for the camp She was a true heroine.
