Abstract:

Stern (born Markus Stern, 1923) relates to Alcoff his experiences of antisemitism in the 1930s in Kraków; of the German invasion and the establishment of the ghetto; of his flight to his grandmother in Gorlice, and the establishment of the ghetto there; of the evacuation of the ghetto, accompanied by terrorization and killing; of his selection for forced labor first near Gorlice, then in Mielec and Wieliczka, and finally in Flossenbürg; of the death march and liberation by the U.S. army. Comments that mutual help among comrades contributed to survival. In 1947 Stern emigrated to the U.S. The German version contains an additional chapter (pp. 75-89) on Stern's participation in a commemoration of former Flossenbürg inmates at the camp and along the route of the death march. Tells of the contrition expressed by many Germans whom he met on this occasion.
