Description
Review:
"A project of the Holocaust Resource Center of Kean University, New Jersey, this book is a reference tool for teaching the Nazi Holocaust, for survivors and their families, and for the general reader. Drawing on the center's mission to produce and preserve a series of oral-history videotapes based on the experiences of survivors residing in New Jersey, Joseph J. Preil brings together 153 of these testimonies as well as accounts by twenty American liberators. Through these personal accounts, the book traces the mass murder of the Jews across Europe within a geographical as well as chronological framework. The testimonies in each chapter are grouped by the witnesses' country or region of origin, preceded by a brief introduction of the history of events in a particular area. This is followed by a chapter in which American soldiers recount their impressions of being present at the liberation of the camps. The book concludes by relating how survivors rebuilt their lives - often very successfully - in the New World."--BOOK JACKET.
