Jakub's world : a boy's story of loss and survival in the Holocaust by Alicia Nitecki( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When German troops come to the small village of Belzyce, Poland, in 1939, nine-year-old Jakub Szabmacher's world is forever changed. At first the humiliations inflicted by the Germans seem small, but the conditions worsen until eventually Jakub's family and much of his village are murdered, and he is sent to various concentration camps in Poland and Germany, where he struggles to survive the terrible conditions of camp life. Finally liberated in 1945 from the concentration camp in Flossenburg, Germany, Jakub is befriended by American troops and with their help brought to the United States, where he takes the name Jack Terry. Coauthor Alicia Nitecki, whose grandfather was also imprisoned at Flossenburg, uses Terry's personal memories to tell young Jakub's story, as well as unpublished memoirs, private letters, and interviews with former inmates of the Flossenburg concentration camp and the townspeople of Belzyce and Flossenburg. Part history, part autobiography, Jakub's World offers an anguished young boy's perspective on the Holocaust." --Book Jacket

The old guard by Mieczysław Lurczyński( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brutally and unflinchingly honest in its depiction of the effects of concentration camp life on the human psyche, Mieczyslaw Lurczynski's The Old Guard is one of the earliest works of Holocaust literature and one of the few works written by a non-Jew who was also a survivor of the camps." "Begun during his imprisonment on scraps and completed immediately after the war, the play is based on Lurczynski's experiences in Buchenwald and its sub-camp in Escherhausen, SS-Kommando Hecht. The action takes place in the Camp Elder's room at Hecht, where the prisoners who hold privileged positions in the camp - old-timers from Auschwitz, Majdanek, and other camps - play cards, drink moonshine, and steal from one another. The play's hero, based on the prewar Polish actor Fryderyk Jarosy, who was also imprisoned at Hecht, attempts to uphold the values of Western civilization in this depraved environment. An impossible task that ultimately leads to his death at the hands of the Camp Elder." --Book Jacket

This remarkable book tells the story of Nelken's experiences in the ghetto and later in eight Nazi concentration camps, including Plaszow, Auschwitz, and Ravensbruck. Her diary entries, written between 1938 and 1943, form the core of the volume and are supplemented by recollections written shortly after the war and by later commentaries and explanatory notes which she added in the mid-1980s. Although there exist numerous published and unpublished memoirs by Holocaust survivors, Nelken's book presents one of the few extant diaries written at the time
