Shouldering Fate

For the author, this book, SHOULDERING FATE is a kind of confession or, if you like a more worldly expression, it is like you go to a psychoanalyst and tell him everything. In both cases your life would seem easier after that.

Describes a dreadful and redemptive course of life - from a happy childhood in his native Transylvania through Auschwitz and a Bavarian labour camp, studies at a Soviet university and ending up in Guelph, Canada, as a happy landed immigrant.

On 381 pages, plus a couple of pictures, John Martin, narrates his life story, explains his actions, analyzes his experiences and thoughts. Sometimes you might not agree with him, but never can this author be charged with lack of sincerity."
