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 archives 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.

    " What a horrific, inhumane and evil occurrence. This must never happen again! A must read to have the slightest insight into the pointless cruelty that was encouraged during WW2. Good on the survivors for compiling their experiences in this book and making people face up to the atrocities "

    " A fantastic collection of short accounts straight from those who were there - from German Jews to Polish Jews to a Lithuanian Policeman (and many more). Very upsetting and a very poignant read that will shock most. A brilliant collection that is a must-read. "

    " I've taken over a year to read this book. It sat at my bedside and I read one or two testimonies at a time. Harrowing, brilliant and should be compulsory. "

    " A true account of holocaust survivors. This book profoundly affected me for weeks and months after I had read it. Only the person with a heart of stone would not be affected by this truly humbling book. Should be compulsory history lesson reading for high schools. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alice | 3/10/2011

    " An incredibly shocking, moving book told by survivors of the Holocaust. Divided into chronological/thematic sections, the audio version is especially vivid as it is told in the survivors' voices, e.g. recordings of interviews. "
