REVIEWER’S COMMENTS ON THE DOCUMENT:

"They wanted to kill my soul" makes people think about problems and raises questions. Each word and each sentence go past prejudices and reach the heart and intelligence and lead us out of our poor and tiny stereotypes and hypocrisies. We are asked to put connivance aside and to act as supporters and educators. It is an important tool for those who want to foster upbringing and focuses on dialogue and sharing moments, starting from a terrible personal experience.
