Auschwitz and After: Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by a member of the French resistance who became an important literary figure in postwar France, this moving memoir of life and death in Auschwitz and the post-war experiences of women survivors has become a key text for Holocaust studies classes. This second edition includes an updated and expanded introduction by Holocaust scholar Lawrence L. Langer.
 
“In this finely translated trilogy, Charlotte Delbo renders with economy and nuance pictures from the hell of Auschwitz. What she recalls in prose and verse would be unbearable except for the very precision of thought and sense she brings to it. No memoir of those times is more sensitive and less sentimental.”—Geoffrey Hartman, Yale University
