  2. Inside the Gas Chambers  Eight Months in the Sonderkommando of Auschwitz  By: Shlomo Venezia

    Inside the Gas Chambers Eight Months in the Sonderkommando of Auschwitz By: Shlomo Venezia

    $25.57

    This is a unique, eye-witness account of everyday life right at the heart of the Nazi extermination machine. Slomo Venezia was born into a poor Jewish-Italian community living in Thessaloniki, Greece. At first, the occupying Italians protected his family; but when the Germans invaded, the Venezias were deported to Auschwitz. His mother and sisters disappeared on arrival, and he learned, at first with disbelief, that they had almost certainly been gassed. Given the chance to earn a little extra bread, he agreed to become a ‘Sonderkommando', without realising what this entailed. He soon found himself a member of the ‘special unit' responsible for removing the corpses from the gas chambers and burning their bodies. Learn More

    Adam Zych. The Auschwitz Poems

    $12.65

    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

  10. This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen

    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
