Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew who was born in 1921 in Bratislava to an observant Jewish family. In 1938, during a stay in Vienna, he witnessed the anti-Jewish measures following the Nazi Anschluss. After returning to Slovakia, Stern, an avid philatelist, opened a stamp dealing business with the help of an Austrian friend. Until 1944 Stern lived with forged papers, that was condoned because of his good relations with members of the Slovak police, but in early 1944 he was arrested by the Germans and sent to the Žilina labor camp. During a deportation to Auschwitz he managed to flee and eventually went into hiding in the movie theater "Redoute" owned by a Czech citizen Alfons Drobny. Here he was found by the police and, in January 1945, sent to Sachsenhausen; the last months of the war Stern was a prisoner in its satellite camp Lichtenrade. He survived because at the end of April, during a death march, the German guards fled and abandoned the prisoners. Describes briefly the survival story of his wife Eva Rosenthal, from Trnava. All of Stern's family, apart from two sisters, perished in Auschwitz; Eva's family also perished. In 1948 the Sterns settled in Australia.
