    Book details

Following the success of Forgotten Voices of the Great War, Lyn Smith visits the oral accounts preserved in the Imperial War Museum Sound Archive, to reveal the sheer complexity and horror of one of human history's darkest hours.

The great majority of Holocaust survivors suffered considerable physical and psychological wounds, yet even in this dark time of human history, tales of faith, love and courage can be found. As well as revealing the story of the Holocaust as directly experienced by victims, these testimonies also illustrate how, even enduring the most harsh conditions, degrading treatment and suffering massive family losses, hope, the will to survive, and the human spirit still shine through.

"A powerfully moving chronicle" (Daily Express)"Powerful cries of pain...All of them capture some element of the torment, and of hope....What might seem a monotonous roll of horror stories becomes, under her keen ear, a mosaic of infinite variety...can be read with an assurance that there will be many aspects of Holocaust in them that will be new, remarkable and thought-provoking" (Martin Gilbert Financial Times)"Full of rich insights...There are no greater stories of courage than those of old relatives who sacrificed themselves so that others could survive" (The Jewish Chronicle)"Deserves maximum space everywhere this autumn... poignant and sometimes horrific reading... it is a timely reminder to appreciate our lives and those we share it with" (The Bookseller)"probably the most harrowing book I'll ever read...gripping....its subject matter is something that should never be forgotten" (Bookseller)

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.

  • By Sweetheart on 5 July 2017

    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.
