9783842398405: Life Hanging on a Spider Web

With his very personal memoirs, Karl Littner - a Jewish boy from Auschwitz-Zasole - gives insight into Jewish life and anti-Semitism in his hometown Oswiecim - Oshpitzin - Auschwitz, Poland before the Second World War. Along with his odyssey, he gives details about some not so well known German forced labor camps like ZAL Raupenau-Kotzenau, Hermannsdorf, Gross Masselwitz, or Grünberg which he passed through in the years 1941 to 1943 via Transfer Camp Sosnowitz (Sosnowiec). He offers his very personal experiences about the difficult life and the systematic terror of the SS and its helpers against Jewish families in Ghetto Sosnowitz/Srodula before he managed to survive Concentration Camp Auschwitz-Birkenau and Gross-Rosen-Fünfteichen by being sent to Concentration Camp Mauthausen-Gusen II, where he was near his end in the huge underground aircraft plant "Bergkristall"at St. Georgen/Gusen. Although his new life began with the liberation from Nazi terror in Concentration Camp Gusen II, Karl Littner describes also the difficult way back into ordinary life. His path to success led him with his German wife Miriam via Straubing and Tel Aviv to Chicago and finally Los Angeles.

About the Author:

Rudolf A. Haunschmied grew up and lived in the St. Georgen-Gusen-Mauthausen area for more than 30 years. Even as a youngster, before his education as a mechanical engineer, he researched the "lost" history of the area. In 1986 he became a founding member of Arbeitskreis für Heimat-, Denkmal- und Geschichtspflege St. Georgen (AHDG) which gave the Gusen Memorial Committee (GMC) a home until January 2008, when he was again among the founding members of the now independent Gusen Memorial Committee. In 1989 he published the first history of Complex St. Georgen-Gusen-Mauthausen. He has led excursions to the remnants of the camps as well as study circles for years. He advises students and researchers. With Pierre Serge Choumoff, he organized the first local-international commemoration at Gusen in 1995 and founded the Mauthausen-Gusen Info-Pages in 1997. In 1996 and 1997 he founded two city-partnerships and was member of "Reforminitiative Mauthausen" at the Interior Ministery in 2000. In 2007 he contributed to Audiowalk Gusen. The author contributed to many publications and documentations on radio and TV and is currently requesting the opening of the "Bergkristall" tunnels to the public.
