Lost Years: From Concentration Camp to Freedom
Federica Spitzer & Sigi Feigel
Usually Ships in 24 to 48 Hours
Offers a direct testimony on the experiences of an Austrian Jewish woman who survived the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Her liberation in 1945, together with 1,200 other Jews, constitutes one of the lesser known stories of the final period of WW2. Paradoxically, the author owes her life to an agreement reached between the inventor of the “final solution,” Heinrich Himmler, the ex-Foreign Min. of Switzerland Jean-Marie Musy, and the Union of Orthodox Rabbis who collected the money for the ransom. In his preface, Moreno Bernasconi describes the complex of conflicting interests and official rationales, that make the liberation of the 1,200 of Theresienstadt an emblematic example of the history of that period.
