The descriptions of Jacques life were wonderful. It was nice to see another person's view of life. Also, I lied that the book talked about Paris. It was not depressing even though it was about World War II.

Die Geschichte von Jacques Lusseyran ist unglaublich, und daher vielleicht so inspirierend. Aber nicht nur Lusseyran's Biographie überzeugt, auch seine Sinne die so viel feinfühliger sind als die meisten von es sich vorstellen können beeindrucken und regen zum Hintersinnen der eigenen Wahrnehmung an.

One of the first books I ever fell in love with; story of a blind leader of the French resistence--it prepared me to marry a man with less than 3 % of his vision (my husband of 38 years). ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0930407407, Paperback)

Selected as one of USA Today’s 100 Best Spiritual Books of the Century, this astonishing autobiography tells the gripping, heroic story of the early life of Jacques Lusseyran, an inspiring individual who overcame the limitations of physical blindness by attending — literally — to the light within his own mind. Through faith in the connection between vivid inner sight and outer events, he became a leader in the French Resistance and survived the horrors at Buchenwald.
