About this book

“In the literature of the Holocaust, there is conveyed that which cannot be transmitted by a thousand facts and figures.”
—Albert H. Friedlander

Developed for use in high school, college, and graduate studies, this is the only literature anthology of its kind.

It includes 23 survivor narratives as well as four other stories. Some authors are famous, some are little known, but all render precisely the reconstructed experience of those who experienced the Holocaust. All the stories enrich our understanding of this dark period in history, its survivors, and their children.

27 stories by Ilse Aichinger, Aharon Appelfeld, Clara Asscher-Pinkhof,  Rachmil Bryks, Ida Fink, Bernard Gotfryd, Albert Halper, Aharon Megged,
Zofia Nalkowska, Sara Nomberg-Przytyk, Cynthia Ozick, Susan Prinz Shear, Isaiah Spiegel, Kurt Vonnegut, and Elie Wiesel.
