About the Author:


The late Terrence Des Pres was Crawshaw Professor of English Literature at Colgate University.

Review:


"Remains a perfect analytic supplement for students reading (as mine do) the memoir literature (Wiesel, Levi, Tec, etc.) in courses on the Holocaust and its impact on survivors and, through them, on western imagination."--A.J. Slavin, University of Louisville


"Powerful book! An intriguing look into the inner workings of the death camps. A must reading for anyone who wants to know just how inhumanly the Naqzis treated their victims."--Prof. Marvin Seperson, New England College


"[A] very fine book."--Saul Lerner, Purdue University Calumet


"A brilliant and beautifully written book about one of the ultimate human experiences."--E.O. Wilson, Harvard University


"An important, tormented, tormenting book."--Elie Wiesel, Boston University


"One turns the last page convinced that, doomsday prophecies notwithstanding, the human species will continue to resist and to survive."--Wassily Leontief, New York University


"A horrifying, well-written, moving account of how men and women come to survive in the worst of all possible worlds."--The Washington Post


"Infinitely touching and heartening."--Alfred Kazin, The New York Times Book Review
