After switching around to nearly full time on MEPIS from XP (another story) I had forgot to login to Facebook for a while, but when I did I got a message from Pierre Berg, concerning his Facebook blog and his new book: SCHEISSHAUS LUCK.

Pierre discussed his book at LitPark:

“If you’re seeking a Holocaust survivor’s memoir with a profound philosophical or poetic statement on the reasons six million Jews and many millions of other unlucky souls were slaughtered and why a person like myself survived the Nazi camps, you’ve opened the wrong book. I’d be lying if I said I knew the reason why or if I even believed there is a reason I’m still alive. As far as I’m concerned it was all shithouse luck, which is to say – inelegantly – that I kept landing on the right side of the randomness of life.”

here’s the rest
