About the Author:

Morris Wyszogrod is a graphic designer, living in New York City.

Review:

“The book effectively combines the narrating of a personal memory which is at the same time a part of collective memory. There are particularly vivid descriptions, and an attention to detail when conveying certain events. Clear and effective, the book is at several moments exceptionally powerful. Because of the author’s work as an artist, he recollects unusual events or perspectives, and also includes powerful illustrations.” ― Sara Horowitz, author of Voicing the Void: Muteness and Memory in Holocaust Fiction

“One of the very many unique features of this memoir is its vivid portraiture of the German culprits, the individual SS men and others with whom the author came in close contact. As a graphic artist, the author had singular opportunities to observe features of camp life that others did not, and he thus offers an original contribution to a crowded field.” ― Lawrence L. Langer, author of Versions of Survival: The Holocaust and the Human Spirit
