Product Description


"A collection of moving, chiseled prose narratives." --"Kirkus Reviews"

"Delbo's book ranks among the best of the literature of the Holocaust." --"Booklist"

From the Back Cover

In Auschwitz, memory meant life: remembering the humanity extinguished by the death camps and hoping to survive to tell what had been endured. In Auschwitz, Charlotte Delbo collected from memory the plays, stories, and poems that fed her companions' spirits. There she committed to memory all that she would one day describe for future generations. In Days and Memory, her last book, completed shortly before her death, Delbo becomes the voice of memory. Poems and vignettes, dialogues and meditations, interweave her experience in the death camp with the sufferings of others around the world, depicting the power of dignity and decency in the face of inhumanity. A remarkable achievement, stark and lyrical, passionate and fiery, this virtuoso performance demands attention-and rewards readers with beauty, sorrow, and hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a very big book.. 7 Sept. 2009
By Barb F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book wasn't very big but it was full--to overflowing with prose, from the death camps of the Holocaust. Her prose were written so well that I could picture the scene that the author was setting for me (the reader) I was so pleased when I was in one of my favorite used bookstores recently, and I found another of books--titled, "Auschwitz and After." I look forward to reading this next book; quite soon after I finish the book I am currently reading. I strongly recommend this book.
