The fact that in this book Martin's own words testify in some detail to his experiences from ghetto to work camp to extermination camps to death march to liberation and eventual arrival to the Land of Israel, powerfully teaches us that the unbelievable actually happened.

Just as importantly, though, our legal system is a strong regulator of humor. It encourages some types of humor while muzzling or punishing…
