Abstract:

Contains an interview with Henryk Mandelbaum (1922-2008) by Jan Południak. Mandelbaum was born in Olkusz, Poland, to a Jewish family; under the German occupation, he was imprisoned in the ghetto of Sosnowiec, then fled and was hidden by friendly Poles. After being denounced, Mandelbaum was arrested in April 1944 and sent to Auschwitz, where he was attached to the Sonderkommando. In this capacity, Mandelbaum was a witness to the process of the Nazi mass murder in Birkenau, which he describes. In October 1944, he was also a witness to the Sonderkommando uprising at the Birkenau crematoria; pp. 82-87 contain an excerpt from the "Auschwitz Chronicle" by Danuta Czech, describing the uprising. In January 1945 Mandelbaum managed to escape from a death march and survived. After the war he remained in Poland. His parents, sister, and brother were killed in Auschwitz. Pp. 105-109 contain an epilogue by Ryszard H. Kordek, adding some details concerning the Sonderkommando and Mandelbaum.
