Trap with a Green Fence: Survival in Treblinka (Jewish Lives) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Trap with a Green Fence is Richard Glazar's memoir of deportation, escape, and survival. In economical prose, Glazar weaves a description of Treblinka and its operations into his evocation of himself and his fellow prisoners as denizens of an underworld. Glazar gives us compelling images of these horrors in a tone that remains thoughtful but sober, affecting but simple.

Synopsis:

This book is the author's memoir of his deportation from Prague to Treblinka, his ten-month conscription as a 'work Jew' at the camp, his escape during the uprising of 1943, and his survival of the war as a foreign worker in Nazi Germany. This powerful document appears for the first time in English in Roslyn Theobald's fluid translation.

About the Author
