Publisher Description

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.

Review

"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
