Product description

Review

"An astonishingly excellent work of historical reconstruction and interpretation . . . [By] combining deep and creative research, conceptual sophistication, and deep humanity, [Friling] offers us what should become a classic, important, and enduring work of history."--Jeffrey Herf, University of Maryland

"Tuvia Friling expertly weaves together Jewish history, European history, and the history of Israel. . . A fascinating read."--Richard Breitman, American University

"An important, innovative, and fascinating book."--Shlomo Aronson, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

"Leafing through this research, one is persistently gripped by the wealth of perspectives, the enthralling and skillful weaving of the story, and the breathtaking effort to exhaust all sources."--Matityahu Mintz, Tel Aviv University

Jerusalem Post Magazine"

Tuvia Friling writes well and with deep feeling . . . offers us an all-embracing and fair presentation of some of the painful pages of our history. Jerusalem Post Magazine"

"Exceptional in many ways. . . .A Jewish Kapo in Auschwitzis a sensitive but penetrating account of the adult life and death of Eliezer Gruenbaum. Friling offers a new enlightened view. . . . Not just a re-creation of historical events but rather a new conception of history. . . . The reader can glimpse a historian of profound humanism. Journal of Modern Jewish Studies"

Gripping and disturbing. . . . One of the great strengths ofthis extremely well-researched book is that it provides an extensive account of this investigation based on the records in the Polish Archiwum Akt Nowych. American Historical Review"

Competent and graceful. . . Frilingpresents a solid study that should be required reading. . . .The scholarly contribution of this study is substantial, but it is potentially useful for professors of historical methodology courses as well. For example, Friling s analysis of the inquiries conducted could serve as a case study of the inherent biases of sources, of the evolution of witness testimony over time, and of the need to sift through conflicting reports to approximate the past. Holocaust and Genocide Studies"

Remarkable. . . Better than any other work I have seen, [Friling] investigates the murky gray zone of the Nazi camps, where prisoner functionaries Jews and non-Jews alike acting as accomplices in Nazi persecution, used their positions for good or ill in a moral world that defies full comprehension.
