    I Was at the Auschwitz Crematorium. A Conversation with Henryk Mandelbaum.Igor Bartosik, Adam Willma.

    $9.96

    This book is a record of conversations with one the most valuable eyewitnesses to the Holocaust — Henryk Mandelbaum, who worked in the Sonderkommando at Auschwitz. Henryk Mandelbaum, a boy from a poor Jewish family, was chosen by the SS for an unimaginably onerous job. The Sonderkommando — the special labor detail — was present in every one of the extermination camps that the Nazis set up during the Second World War. The basic duty of the prisoners selected for this kind of work was burying or burning the bodies of murdered prisoners, cleaning out the rooms used as gas chambers, sorting the valuables left behind by the victims, and other tasks connected with the mass murder of Jews.

    Janka Abrami: Last Lullaby She saw the chimneys belching smoke and the black smoke above covering the world with a blanket of doom obscuring the picture of God. She held on to her mother the terror in her dark eyes distorting her four-year-old face with ancient wisdom. "I don't want to go in there for a shower," she cried. "I don't want to go!" "Shash... my pet, don't cry the water won't be cold and I'll hold you tight," the woman soothed her child as they walked into the concrete cage. She couldn't see the chimneys any more nor the dark clouds above nor did she hear the moans and the "Shema Israel" of others as she snuggled close to her mother. All she heard was the loving voice whisper the last lullaby of Auschwitz: "Shash, my darling, Shash..." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Learn More

    This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen

    $10.77

    Published in Poland after World War II, this collection of concentration camp stories shows atrocious crimes becoming an unremarkable part of a daily routine. Prisoners eat, work, sleep, and fall in love a few yards from where other prisoners are systematically slaughtered. The will to survive overrides compassion, and the line between the normal and the abnormal wavers, then vanishes. Borowski, a concentration camp victim himself, understood what human beings will do to endure the unendurable. Together, these stories constitute not only a masterpiece of Polish - and world - literature but stand as cruel testimony to the level of inhumanity of which man is capable. Learn More
