Masquerade by Tivadar Soros

Book Description

The Nazis came late to Hungary because, until early 1944, Germany and Hungary were allies. But when they did arrive, their orders were to put the "Final Solution" into effect with deliberate speed. Soros, a Jewish lawyer in Budapest, secured fake Christian identities for himself, his wife, and his two sons following the German invasion of Hungary on March 19, 1944. In a narrative reminiscent of the great Primo Levi, Soros recounts his experiences with a beguiling humor, deep humanity, and a wisdom that is humbling. Superbly translated by Humphrey Tonkin, "Masquerade" is a unique account of how one man managed not only to survive but to retain his integrity, compassion, family unity, and humor by "dancing around death." Like Klemperer's "Diary of the Nazi Years," this very personal, low-key testament of the Holocaust is a gripping depiction of "normal" daily life under the Nazis--told by a man who triumphed by leading an ordinary life under extraordinary and terrifying circumstances.

Crime and the Silence by Anna Bikont Crime and the Silence by Anna Bikont

In July 1941, just weeks after the Germans invaded Russia, the Jewish population of a small Polish town - hundreds of men, women and children - were ordered out of their homes, and forced into a barn. Part history, part memoir, part detective story, this book is an account of the events of July 1941: the true story of the massacre, and more.

Before Auschwitz by Kim Wunschmann Before Auschwitz by Kim Wunschmann

Nazis began detaining Jews in camps as soon as they came to power in 1933. Kim Wunschmann reveals the origin of these extralegal detention sites, the harsh treatment Jews received there, and the message the camps sent to Germans: that Jews were enemies of the state, dangerous to associate with and fair game for acts of intimidation and violence.
