lukas, January 30, 2014 (view all comments by lukas)
Stalin said something to the effect of one death is a tragedy, while a million deaths is a statistic. When approaching the Holocaust, there is really no way to grasp 6 million deaths; it's just too much, too incomprehensible. So I think it's through individual testimonies that we really can get some understanding of the dehumanizing effects of the camps. Along with Primo Levi's books, Polish author Tadeusz Borowski's book of interconnected stories "This Way for the Gas" offers up a devastating, moving and deeply human account of life in the camps (Auschwitz). Like Levi, Borowski survived, but ultimately took his own life.
