Abstract:

Eye to Eye is a page-turning tale of survival in Nazi-occupied Poland, framed by an emotional firsthand account of the survivor's testimony at trial, nearly thirty years later, that helped put a notorious war criminal behind bars for life. A new translation of the official court transcript of Charatan's testimony appears here for the first time in print. Charatan's story is an unblinking glimpse into the horror of the Nazi scourge, but also an awe-inspiring testament to human kindness and decency. Survival would not have been possible for the Charatan family, and so many others, had not scores of ordinary people risked their lives in order to save them. Everywhere in this breathtaking odyssey, the sacred and the profane mingle freely.--Page 4 of cover.
