The story of a female physician shipped to the infamous death camp and put to work in the infirmary. Translated into English from the German by Susan H. Ray. "A taut, terse Holocaust narrative that is all the more powerful for its ironic reserve." —Kirkus Reviews "Lest Nazi Germany's brutalities be forgotten, this understated, appalling book, which first appeared in German in 1956, ought to remain perpetually in print . . . In May 1943, [Dr. Adelsberger] was transported to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where, under the general supervision of Josef Mengele, she was permitted to practice her profession . . . Her account of the starvation, cruelty, and sadism meted out to women and children against the backdrop . . . of the flames and stench from burning bodies will long remain in the minds of readers."—Booklist

6 AVITAL, DR. MOSHE. Not To Forget, Impossible To Forgive.
Mazo Publishers, Jerusalem: 2004. 9659046243 / 9789659046249 First Edition (Unstated). h Hardcover, no dustjacket. Very good condition. 
This is the heroic story of a young Jewish boy's survival in the Nazi concentration camps, as well as an analysis of the Nazi era. At 14, Moshe Doft Avital and his family were expelled from their hometown, Bilke, Ruthenia in Czechoslovakia to the Ghetto Beregszasz. The Germans separated Avital from his family after they were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. His parents were murdered in Auschwitz. He was imprisoned as a slave laborer in five other concentration camps before being liberated from Buchenwald by the U.S. Army on April 11, 1945. Avital began an arduous recuperation process along with 500 other young people who became known as the Children of Buchenwald. Avital rebuilt his life, established his family, and became a recognized authority in Jewish education. Dr. Avital presents extraordinary testimony, bringing to light many unknown facts about the Holocaust era. He provides psychological, philosophical, and theological analyses and reflections regarding the perpetrators of the Holocaust. He takes to task the individuals, organizations, and nations who committed horrific atrocities against the Jewish people. Dr. Avital's observations and conclusions come with poignancy and authority, supported by his firsthand experiences in the Holocaust and his educational background.

7 BACALL-ZWIRN, ALINA & STARK, JARED. No Common Place: The Holocaust Testimony Of Alina Bacall - Zwirn.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln & London: 1999. 0803261780 / 9780803261785 First Bison Books Printing. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
"You know, a lot of people like to talk about it, and I'm always pushing, pushing away, you know, I'm always pushing. I hate to remember, I hate to talk about it." But in the wake of her husband's death, and afraid that the story would never be told, Alina Bacall-Zwirn, a survivor of the Warsaw ghetto and four Nazi concentration camps, decided to remember and to bear witness to the history she and her husband suffered together. In a unique format that combines personal testimony, photographs, letters, legal documents and contributions from Alina's family; No Common Place interweaves a survivor's story with her reflections on the impact of her traumatic past on herself and her family. As it follows Alina through conversations with Jared Stark and with interviewers at the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies, and as it records her participation in the dedication ceremonies of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, the books speaks to the importance of the individual's voice in shaping collective memory of the Holocaust. The supporting materials—chronology, maps, and notes—allow the survivor's voice to serve as a guide to the study of the Holocaust and its aftermath. Alina Bacall-Zwirn was born Alinka Handszer in Warsaw, Poland, in 1922. Married in the Warsaw ghetto and a survivor of four Nazi concentration camps, she immigrated to the United States with her husband in 1949. Alina died in 1997, one month after completing her testimony. Jared Stark is Assistant Professor of Literary Cultures at the John W. Draper Interdisciplinary Master's Program in Humanities and Social Thought at New York University. "A wrenching human tale of terrible tragedy and the power of love. . . . Lacking any trace of sentimentality or drama, and told in a series of interviews by a woman who never quite mastered English, this powerful story illustrates the impossibility of weaving a coherent narrative from the shattered memories of those years. At the same time, the reader gradually discovers the extraordinary strength of the love which sustains both Leo and Alina.—Times Literary Supplement "Achingly honest and sensitively narrated, No Common Place is no common memoir. Weaving together testimony, dialogue, letters, and documents, it moves with grace between the past and the present. Through these seamless transitions, we learn—or perhaps remember anew—that the past is not really past; it lives on in us and in our families. This is an extraordinary and most welcome addition to Holocaust literature."—Deborah Dwork, Rose Professor of Holocaust History and director of the Center for Holocaust Studies at Clark University "Through its rare and moving commitment to the authenticity of the survivor's voice, No Common Place conveys both the lacerating details of Alina Bacall-Zwirn's past and the deeply humanizing story of her efforts to leave a legacy of memory to her children and to future generations. Jared Stark's sensitive arrangement of this testimony allows us to hear the urgency and vulnerability of her voice as she recalls the atrocities she and her community suffered. Stark's book is a contribution both to the historical record and to the crucial study of what it means to live in the aftermath of the Holocaust."—Geoffrey Hartman, project director of the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies at Yale University

14 BISBERG-YOUKELSON, FEIGL & YOUKELSON, RUBIN (EDITORS). The Life And Death Of A Polish Shtetl.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln: 2000. 0803261675 / 9780803261679 First Edition (Unstated). s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Numerous Holocaust memoirs recount the unspeakable horrors that individuals witnessed and endured during the Nazis' reign. Less well known are the post-World War II yizkors, collective memoirs written by survivors to memorialize a home village purged or destroyed by Nazis. The Hebrew word yizkor translates as "he shall remember" and also refers to a prayer for the dead. While hundreds of yizkors exist, very few have been translated into English. The Life and Death of a Polish Shtetl, the memorial for the town of Strzegowo, was collected and edited in 1951. Its stories are simple, yet they evoke considerable emotional turmoil. Some are shattering tales of torture, cultural destruction, and death. Others are moving remembrances of what the beloved little town was like before it was invaded by the Nazis. Because there is no longer a Jewish population living in Strzegowo, this book is an important record of what was lost. Feigl Bisberg-Youkelson was a writer. Rubin Youkelson was a critic and reviewer. Translated into English by Gene Bluestein, a professor emeritus of English at California State University at Fresno, is the author of Anglish/Yinglish: Yiddish in American Life and Literature (Nebraska 1998) and other works.

20 BROWNING, CHRISTOPHER R. WITH CONTRIBUTIONS BY MATTHAUS, JURGEN. The Origins Of The Final Solution: The Evolution Of Nazi Jewish Policy, September 1939 - March 1942.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London / Yad Vashem, Jerusalem: 2007. 0803259794 / 9780803259799 The Comprehensive History of the Holocaust Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
In 1939, the Nazi regime's plans for redrawing the demographic map of Eastern Europe entailed the expulsion of millions of Jews. By the fall of 1941, these plans had shifted from expulsion to systematic and total mass murder of all Jews within the Nazi grasp. The Origins of the Final Solution is the most detailed and comprehensive analysis ever written of what took place during this crucial period—of how, precisely, the Nazis' racial policies evolved from persecution and "ethnic cleansing" to the Final Solution of the Holocaust. Focusing on the months between the German conquest of Poland in September 1939-which brought nearly two million additional Jews under Nazi control—and the beginning of the deportation of Jews to the death camps in the spring of 1942, Christopher R. Browning describes how Poland became a laboratory for experiments in racial policies, from expulsion and decimation to ghettoization and exploitation under local occupation authorities. He reveals how the subsequent attack on the Soviet Union opened the door for an immense radicalization of Nazi Jewish policy—and marked the beginning of the Final Solution. Meticulously documenting the process that led to this fatal development, Browning shows that Adolf Hitler was the key decision-maker throughout, approving major escalation in Nazi persecution of the Jews at victory-induced moments of euphoria. Thoroughly researched and lucidly written, this groundbreaking work provides an essential chapter in the history of the Holocaust. Christopher R. Browning is Frank Porter Graham Professor of History at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. He is the author of numerous books on Nazism and the Holocaust, including Nazi Policy, Jewish Workers, German Killers and Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland. Includes an Index. "Christopher Browning has produced a standard of historical work, which is accordingly characterized by scholarly precision and intellectual honesty."—Gerhard Hirschfeld, Journal of Modern History "Extraordinary. . . . A masterpiece of the historian's art."—Benjamin Schwarz, Atlantic Monthly "[Browning's] massive account is utterly convincing in its historical detail."—Foreign Affairs The definitive work on the road Germany took toward the Final Solution during the crucial first three years of the war."—Istvan Deak, New York Review of Books "Magisterial."—New York Times Book Review "Superb. . . . [Browning] has created an eloquent, painstaking narrative of how the Final Solution evolved."—Joshua Rubenstein, Wall Street Journal History Book Club Main Selection, Book-of-the-Month Club Selection, Military Book Club Selection 2004 National Jewish Book Award, sponsored by the Jewish Book Council, holocaust category winner 2004 "Book of the Year," sponsored by the Atlantic Monthly
