Overview

Quickly becoming a cornerstone of Holocaust historiography—a devastatingly stark memoir from one of the lone survivors of Treblinka.Why do some live while so many others perish? Tiny children,old men, beautiful girls. In the gas chambers of Treblinka,all are equal. The Nazis kept the fires of Treblinka burning night and day, a central cog in the wheel of the Final Solution.In the tradition of Elie Wiesel’s Night and Primo Levi’s Survival at Auschwitz and The Drowned and the Saved, Rajchman provides the only survivors’ record of Treblinka. Originally written in Yiddish in 1945 without hope or agenda other than to bear witness, Rajchman's tale shows that sometimes the bravest and most painful act of all is to remember.

    Highly Recommended

    This book is a stark, realistic look at what life was like in one of the death camps. It is something that more people should read. It is amazing what humans could do to each other and the strenght it took for some to survive.

    Excellent

    While the subject matter is difficult and depressing, this book itself is excellent. I have read about the Holocaust for years, but still have found new information about the hardships endured during those years. It is well worth your time and money to read.

    Very sad but very interesting and thought provoking memoir. If y

    Very sad but very interesting and thought provoking memoir. If you are very interested in the holocaust (as I am) then you will find this book very insightful. I learned things in it that hadn't been mentioned in other memoirs, owning to the fact that each person's experience is different. I definitely recommend this book.
