And There Was Light
The author’s description of his life’s path is joyful, passionate and heartfelt. He is an idealistic young man who knows no hesitation or doubt, despite the fact that he has been blind since age eight as the result of an accident. But … he “sees” and, above all, feels much more than others, developing a perception that is well above average, even for non-blind people, and an almost perfect knowledge of human nature.
Jacques very movingly describes his friendship with his noble-minded peer Jean.
I was very impressed by the way Jacques Lusseyran survived imprisonment in the Buchenwald concentration camp at the age of twenty, which was possible thanks to his spiritual conviction.
This book is highly recommended.
