This review is from: Babi Yar (Hardcover)
A truly harrowing tale of the atrocities meted out by the Nazi's as they rampaged through the Russia's. A really bitter story of one boys existance amidst all the turmoil and degradation of a little known area in Kiev known as Babi Yar, a ravine where ethnic peoples were brutally executed for just purely existing.
Written crudely at the time by the boy, whose mother told him to get the story out into the world, and this is that book. Published in the 1960's, after all manner of cuts, exclusions and political meddling. I had bought a paperback copy some years earlier, but, a good percentage was missing, so, I spent a while trying to secure another, full copy. This, although secondhand, is worth the money spent. It should be in print today and rank alongside the Primo Levis books...
