Abstract:

Memoirs of the author, relating his experiences during the Holocaust. The knife mentioned in the title was given to him by his fiancée (later wife) just before the war; it had a Magen David and an engraving of Herzl, yet van der Hal managed to keep it in all the camps he was sent to. As a doctor in Groningen, he refused to obey an order by the Jewish Council to select Jews for deportation to labor camps. As punishment, he was sent to the camps, among others to the "Jewish camp" of the Nederlandse Heidemaatschappij (a Dutch company) at Sellingerbeetse (near Groningen). Of the 500 Jews from Amsterdam who were sent there, 300 names have been identified (the list is given on pp. 22-41). From there, he was deported to Vught and then to Auschwitz, which he survived. His wife also survived.
