Rather die fighting : a memoir of World War II by Frank Blaichman( )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank Blaichman was sixteen years old when the war broke out. In 1942, the killings began in Poland. With his family and friends decimated by the roundups, Blaichman decided that he would rather die fighting; he set off for the forest to find the underground bunkers of Jews who had already escaped. Together they formed a partisan force dedicated to fighting the Germans. This is a harrowing, utterly moving memoir of a young Polish Jew who chose not to go quietly and defied the mighty German war machine during World War II.

Destination unknown( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Destination Unknown blends intimate testimony with immersive archive to bring the stories of twelve Holocaust survivors to the screen. The film creates a seamless mosaic of first-hand accounts, rare archive from the time, and family Super 8 footage from after the war. The survivors share their memories, some for the first time, some for the last, bringing their experiences to a new generation. They endured the death camps. They hid in remote farms. They fought as partisans in Polish forests. But when the war ended, those survivors' struggles were only just beginning. With the only interview ever recorded of Mietek Pemper, the stenographer for the Kraków-Płaszów concentration camp Commandant - Amon Göth and advisor to Oskar Schindler, who previously refused to talk on film, among other incredible personal stories, Destination Unknown paints a uniquely intimate portrait of survival, revealing the pain that has never faded, but cannot crush the human spirit. Their stories do not end with liberation. We see how they had to survive the chaos that came afterwards, and their attempts to build new lives" --Container
