Publisher's Summary

Quickly becoming a cornerstone of Holocaust historiography, this is a devastatingly stark memoir from one of the lone survivors of Treblinka.
Why do some live while so many others perish? Tiny children, old men, beautiful girls - in the gas chambers of Treblinka, all are equal. The Nazis kept the fires of Treblinka burning night and day, a central cog in the wheel of the Final Solution.
In the tradition of Elie Wiesel's Night and Primo Levi's Survival in Auschwitz and The Drowned and the Saved, Rajchman provides the only survivors' record of Treblinka. Originally written in Yiddish in 1945 without hope or agenda other than to bear witness, Rajchman's account shows that sometimes the bravest and most painful act of all is to remember.

Profoundly Significant and Historically Sobering

Sometimes hearing the truth is difficult. However, failing to learn from history's most blatently horrific sins to ensure they are not repeated is an equally awful atrocity. There is no better witness than an eye witness who lives to tell the story. A powerful testament to a dark time in history and the triumphant spirit of this special and unique human being.
