"Love in the Shadow of Death" is the story of two prisoners from the Auschwitz Death Camp – Mala Zimetbaum, a Jewish woman, and Edward Galiński, a Polish man. Mala, thanks to her knowledge of several languages and engaging personality, was made a messenger (Läuferin) in the women’s camp. Edek – prisoner of Auschwitz, brought in the first transport of Polish political prisoners – after his stay in the main camp, was transferred to the maintenance work unit in Auschwitz II-Birkenau. This illustrated historical book tells the story of the love that these two individuals develop for one another, their unsuccessful escape, and their tragic death in the camp. This book shows, in a non stereotypical way, the complicated relationship between prisoners, the functionary prisoners, and the members of the SS guard garrison within Auschwitz. Publisher: We return to the subject of Auschwitz using a new method and bearing in mind the contemporary Reader, who wants to expand their knowledge about concentration and death camps created by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland during the Second World War. The history of Auschwitz is presented by showing the fate of real people, showing them as they really were, their ups and downs, hopes and doubts in the nightmarish depravity of Auschwitz. Historical research works, essential in the understanding of history, are, in our opinion, not enough and often don’t appeal to young readers. A straightforward illustrated historical book in an attractive graphical form, written in a lively way, offers the opportunity to better perceive the tragic events, and therefore to gain a more direct knowledge of the history. Education: The illustrated historical books are created in cooperation with historians specializing in concentration and extermination camps, military matters, and World War II. Work on the comic is accompanied by in-depth consultations with survivors, especially former prisoners of Auschwitz. The historical books “Episodes from Auschwitz” can be excellent educational materials for both teachers and students. Each book is 40 pages long. In addition to the dynamic color art work, the Reader will find an introduction that puts the presented events into historical context, an article by a researcher on the subject, a glossary of historical terms, and bibliography. Supplementary educational material with notes for teachers is aimed for use in the classroom. This material is available FREE OF CHARGE, downloadable from our website www.episodesfromauschwitz.pl in PDF file format. The illustrated historical books can also be used to prepare young people for a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum in Oświęcim, especially during topic-based visits – footsteps of the heroes whose destinies are presented in the following episodes in the series. LANGUAGES: EN, DE, FR, IT, NOR, SWE, PL.
