This Has Happened: An Italian Family in Auschwitz

by

This Has Happened: An Italian Family in Auschwitz Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Five years after her return home from Auschwitz, Piera Sonnino found the courage to tell the story of the extermination of her parents, three brothers, and two sisters by the Nazis. Discovered in Italy and never before published in English, this poignant and extraordinarily well-written account is strikingly accurate in bringing to life the methodical and relentless erosion of the freedoms and human dignity of the Italian Jews, from Mussolini's racial laws of 1938 to the institutionalized horror of Auschwitz. Through Sonnino's words, memory has the power to disarm these unspeakable evils.

Synopsis:

In the vein of Primo Levi's bestseller Survival in Auschwitz comes this rare and stark testimonial of an Italian woman who survived the Nazi concentration camps
