Summary:
Why do some live while so many others perish? Tiny children, old men, beautiful girls. In the gas chambers of Treblinka, all are equal. The Nazies kept the fires of Treblinka burning night and day, a central cog in the wheel of the Final solution. In the tradition of Elie Wiesel's Night and Primo Levi's Survival at Auschwitz and the Drowned and the Saved, Rajchman provides the only survivor's record of Treblinka.  Read more...

Abstract:

Why do some live while so many others perish? Tiny children, old men, beautiful girls. In the gas chambers of Treblinka, all are equal. The Nazies kept the fires of Treblinka burning night and day, a central cog in the wheel of the Final solution. In the tradition of Elie Wiesel's Night and Primo Levi's Survival at Auschwitz and the Drowned and the Saved, Rajchman provides the only survivor's record of Treblinka. Originally written in Yiddish in 1945, without hope or agenda other than to bear witness, Rajchman's tale shows that sometimes the bravest and most painful act of all is to remember. -Back cover.
