Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew born to a wealthy family in Cieszyn in 1927. In 1939 the city was invaded by the Germans. A year later Spitzer's older brother disappeared while trying to escape to Slovakia, and his father died at home. Spitzer and his mother moved to Strzemieszyce, a village 80 km from Cieszyn. The Germans gathered Jews from the surrounding area into the Strzemieszyce ghetto, created in 1941. Spitzer and his mother remained there until the ghetto was liquidated in June 1943 and they were separated. Spitzer was deported to the slave labor camp of Blechhammer. Conditions worsened after April 1944, when the SS took over administration of the camp, which was annexed to Auschwitz. In January 1945 Spitzer was forced on a death march and ended up in Buchenwald. Political prisoners there saved him from being deported to another camp, where death was certain, against a promise that he would draw from memory what he had seen in the camp. He was forced on a second death march when the camp was evacuated in spring 1945. After the war he settled in Paris and became a famous illustrator. His mother apparently died in Auschwitz.
