Product description

Review

'In its poignant simplicity, Rajchman's account opens new horizons in our perception of evil ... An important, heart-rending contribution to our the search for truth' Elie Wiesel.

'Rajchman's searing story ... has a powerful authenticity and should not be forgotten. A Holocaust testament of heart-rending immediacy' Kirkus Reviews.

'An incomparable testimony of the Nazi extermination machine ... written with extraordinary narrative power' Natalie Levisalles, Libération.

'His 96-page memoir, translated from the original Yiddish, has a powerful immediacy' Martin Gilbert, The Times.

'Rajchman writes vigorously ... this is an important book that deserves a prominent place in Holocaust literature' Victor Sebestyen, The Sunday Times.

'Written in the present tense it has a vivid immediacy and starkness about it that no historical book is able to achieve' Christopher Silvester, Sunday Express.

'His unadorned prose takes us to a place unlike any other in human history, at the extreme limits of human endurance and understanding' David Cesarani, New Statesman.

'As tense as any thriller … the writer's duty is to tell the truth; the reader's duty is to learn from it' James Carson, Skinny.

From the Inside Flap

Chil Rajchman, a Polish Jew, was twenty-eight years old when he was arrested in October 1942 and sent to Treblinka, a death camp where more than 750,000 Jews were murdered before it was abandoned by German soldiers. His sister travelled with him and was immediately sent to the gas chambers, but Rajchman escaped execution, working for ten months under incessant threats and beatings as a barber, a clothes-sorter, a corpse-carrier, a puller of teeth from those same corpses. In August 1943 there was an uprising at the camp, and Rajchman was among the handful of men who managed to escape. Even before the war was over, while Rajchman was still in hiding, he set down in a notebook this unembellished and exact record of the raw horror he endured every day at the camp. This unique testimony has remained in the sole possession of his family since then, and has never before been published in English. For its description of unspeakable cruelty, Treblinka is a memoir that will not be superseded. In addition to Rajchman's account, this volume includes the complete text of Vasily Grossman's 'The Hell of Treblinka', a powerful and harrowing journalistic essay written only weeks after the camp was dissolved, and an introduction by Samuel Moyn, Professor of History at Columbia University.
