    Book details


Following the success of "Forgotten Voices of the Great War" the series now chronicles one of human histories darkest hours. The author comes to the project following her significant work in recording the experiences of Holocaust survivors for the Imperial War Museum sound archive - one of the most important archive of its kind in the world. The intertwined moving and revealing interviews reveal the sheer complexity and horror of the Holocaust. The great majority of survivors suffered considerable physical and psychological wounds, yet the overall story is far from being just gloom and doom. There are many poignant vignettes describing acts of charity, reciprocity and kindness in the face of the most extreme form of barbarism. As well as revealing the story of the Holocaust as directly experienced by victims, these testimonies also illustrate how, even enduring the most harsh and degrading conditions and treatment as well as suffering massive family losses, hope, the will to survive and the human spirit shines through.

"* 'The stories of these now long-dead vets simply jump off the page' - FHM * 'This extraordinary book is crammed with details, conjuring up the atmosphere of war as vividly as the frequent descriptions of appalling violence' - Daily Telegraph * 'The words of the soldiers are as fresh as if they were written yesterday...extraordinary' - Deborah Moggach, Mail on Sunday * 'Everyone who loves oral history will enjoy the often harrowing accounts contained in this book' - History Today * 'a compelling account of a world not to be forgotten' - Despatches"

Review Text

  • By dp on 31 August 2017

    These are the stories which needed to be told and need to be remembered. The chronological ordering of the narratives, which cover the years before and after WW2, helps us understand the full reaches of the tragedy. The real stories reveal, so honestly, the regrets, betrayals, heroism, disbelief, helplessness, endurance and strength, that only those who have experienced such things can know.

    This is a very well put together book that everyone should read. The content of personal stories and experiences are quite harrowing at times and make it difficult to read, but it is absolutely brilliant.

  • By Delanos on 21 March 2017

    A £20 book for £2.86 including postageCant beat that.

    A book that needs reading however distressing it maybe. Not a topic that everyone immediately finds appealing but very interesting none the less. Firsthand accounts of pre, mid and post holocaust from everyday people who lived during some of the most horrific times of the 20th century. A well collaborated and historically useful book especially as time passes We are rapidly losing the generations who can recount what happened during the holocaust, and this terrible episode in history should never be forgotten.

    Having visited Auswitz I really needed to read about the survivors. A truly heart wrenching account of the pure evil that befell them. I still cannot get my head around the cruelty and depraved behaviour..a must read for all so never forgotten.
