Product Description

Review

"A powerfully moving chronicle" (Daily Express)

"Powerful cries of pain...All of them capture some element of the torment, and of hope....What might seem a monotonous roll of horror stories becomes, under her keen ear, a mosaic of infinite variety...can be read with an assurance that there will be many aspects of Holocaust in them that will be new, remarkable and thought-provoking" (Martin Gilbert Financial Times)

"Full of rich insights...There are no greater stories of courage than those of old relatives who sacrificed themselves so that others could survive" (The Jewish Chronicle)

"Deserves maximum space everywhere this autumn... poignant and sometimes horrific reading... it is a timely reminder to appreciate our lives and those we share it with" (The Bookseller)

"probably the most harrowing book I'll ever read...gripping....its subject matter is something that should never be forgotten" (Bookseller)

Format: Paperback
There is little that I can add that other reviewers have not already said. It is not possible to understand what drove the Nazis to do such terrible things, but this book gives those who suffered at their hands a voice. It does not make for easy reading. It made me cry more then once and I did feel a lasting impact from it. It is crucial to learn about the holocaust, however, since with the world being as it is, it is not unfesible that history will repeat itself.

Format: Paperback
If everyone was made to read only one book in their life then this should be the one. In the preface the reader is warned that this is not a pleasant book to read and of course it was never going to be. The first hand accounts by people, most of whom were incarcerated in concentration and death camps tell the true story of what the holocaust was about. There are details of how peoples lives were effected before and after the war and how they increasingly suffer up to the present day. This is a very well written account of the Holocaust and having read it, how anyone can ever deny that it ever happened is beyond me. I shall treasure this book and no doubt use it in the coming years in my furtherence of Holocaust studies. I will always recommend it to anyone who wants to know about the Final Solution and how millions of innocent people were so shamefully treated and sent to their deaths. May the Nazi'z rot in hell!

A book that needs reading however distressing it maybe. Not a topic that everyone immediately finds appealing but very interesting none the less. Firsthand accounts of pre, mid and post holocaust from everyday people who lived during some of the most horrific times of the 20th century. A well collaborated and historically useful book especially as time passes We are rapidly losing the generations who can recount what happened during the holocaust, and this terrible episode in history should never be forgotten.

So much has already been said about how harrowing this book is and how terrible the atrocities were which befell the Jews and other groups targeted by the Nazis. Rather than repeat what's already been covered I'll try to keep this review to the format of the book itself and what you can expect.

The book is split chronologically into chapters which cover the persecution of the Jews before the war, during it, and also their plight in the aftermath of the war. Each chapter includes dozens of short (just a few paragraphs) testimonies from named individuals who tell in their own words the horror of what they experienced. The pre-war stuff provides good contrast for what came later. After the Third Reich came to power it started gradually, for example, with Jewish children being told they could no longer take part in this or that after-school club simply because they were Jews. You know it gets worse. Much worse.

The book covers the search for refuge before the war began; the rapid increase in persecution with the expansion of the Reich; life in the Ghettos; the Camps; the Death Marches; and finally Liberation and its Aftermath.

It covers just about every type of cruel, degrading and brutal treatment you can imagine.

Also included is a map of Europe showing the locations of the main camps and dozens of photos mostly from the archives of the Imperial War Museum.

I thoroughly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This book has had such an effect on me. It is sad, harrowing, horrifying, and, worst of all, TRUE!! I just can't begin to imagine how it must have been for these poor people, who were persecuted, degraded, humiliated and executed and all by other 'human' beings. We like to think of ourselves as so clever, so superior, and that we are good people. Not so. Although we know some of what happened in these concentration camps, and we know how the Jews and other ethnic minorities sufferred, we like to sweep it under the carpet. It's in the past. It's history. It's over. Well, it may be in the past, but it will never be over. It is an indelible stain on the face of humanity, and how anyone can try to deny it ever happened is beyond me. Read these eye-witness accounts of what happened. There is no way that these atrocities can ever be denied. I just find it utterly incomprehensible that anyone survived the holocaust, let alone went on to lead their lives, marry, have children. How they managed to triumph over such adversity defies belief. Their spirit and will to live was incredible. It's not like this happened centuries ago. It was 12 years before I was born. When I look at it like that, it is so scary that these things could happen in our 'enlightened' society. And for what? What was the reason for these appalling acts on these victims? It makes me angry, and very, very sad. We must never, ever forget what happened to these people, and how they sufferred. Their voices must never be stilled. When they are all gone, this book and others like it must be read by all, so that nothing is lost. Prejudice and hatred still exist in the world, and acts of extreme violence are committed daily somewhere, but we must never accept this as the norm.Read more ›
