Moving account of true courage,
This review is from: Treblinka Survivor: The Life and Death of Hershl Sperling (Hardcover)
A story of real courage in the face of the terrible suffering endured by the Jews in concentration camps. Hersl Sperling tried desperately to put his life back together after liberation, but sadly succumbed to terrible depression as a result of his suffering and loss of his family. The effect his suffering had on his two sons, who still carry the burden, is quite unusual in books about survivors, and showed even more vividly the long term effects of the Nazi's hatred and cruelty to the Jews.

Hello. I totally agree with you. I try to read as much as possible about the Holocaust, but have not read this book. I have been studying the actual Nurenberg transcripts especially document 3311-PS exhibit USA-293 which mentions the Polish governments investigation into Trebinka in 1945, and how they found that the prefered method of killing people was by steam. Could you please tell me if this is mentioned in the book. Many thanks.
