Overview

This book is a record of oral history as the author recorded the personal testimony of over 100 survivors of the Nazi concentration camps in the course of his enquiry into how they have come to terms with their ordeals since World War II.
Anton Gill has talked to political opponents and resistance fighters as well as Jewish victims. Some have remained in Austria, Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary; others have emigrated to Israel, the USA and England. Many have never before talked about their experiences to anyone, not even their own families. All have singular tales to tell of the physical and mental aftermath, but, above all, there is hope - in the words of Ben Helfgott, a Polish-Jewish survivor and chairman of the Holocaust Memorial Committee in the UK: "Better people than me died and so I must try to make my life something good, for the only way to triumph over evil is to make sure that some good comes out of it".
Anton Gill is also the author of "Martin Allen is Missing", "Mad about the Boy" and "How to be Oxbridge".
