Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew born in Leer, Germany, in 1926. In 1937 his parents sent him and his brother Walter to join their grandparents, who had found refuge in Nunspeet, Netherlands. In 1943 Zilversmit, his brother, and their grandparents were deported to Westerbork and from there to Theresienstadt. In September 1944 the two brothers were deported to Auschwitz, and were sent from there to work at the satellite camp of Gleiwitz. They survived a death march to Blechhammer, where they were liberated. Zilversmit's grandparents were on the last transport from Theresienstadt to Auschwitz, where they were murdered. He returned to Nunspeet, where the neighbors returned his family's property. Relates that during the war the police and mayor of the village refused to arrest Jews. After the war, Zilversmit was reunited with Ilse van Collem, whom he had met in Westerbork; they married and immigrated to Canada.
