Language: English . Brand New Book. Kazimierz Tyminski was young and full of life, a Polish university student living in Krakow, with a talent for music. He had a brief spell in the Polish Resistance before the Gestapo came knocking in 1941. Kazimierz was sent to the notorious Auschwitz concentration camp. By a quirk of fate, and luck, Kazimierz is forced into providing entertainment to the SS and Camp commandant. Through his ability to play the piano and the accordion, he avoids starvation, disease and the gas chambers. This is the powerful true story of a man caught up in the Nazi final solution and a deeply personal account of life in the most notorious of concentration camps. Translated by his children in fulfilment of their father s wishes, this book reproduces faithfully the camp notes written from Kazimierz s arrest in October 1941 to his liberation in April 1945.

Synopsis: This biographical account of a Polish prisoner who survives the notorious concentration camp at Auschwitz stretches from his arrest in October 1941, to his liberation in April 1945. Kazimierz Tyminski describes himself as young, and full of bravado as he modestly relives memories, both horrific and inspirational, of his time in Auschwitz, and other concentration camps Buchenwald and Hecht. While living in the camps, he finds that it is not just luck that saves his life time after time. The magic and influence of music, and his own talent for playing it, see him survive the most incredible circumstances. Told from the perspective of a Polish man who was not oppressed for a Jewish heritage, this book provides a voice for all non-Jews who were affected by the holocaust.

In 1981, son of the author, Andrew Tyminski and his family immigrated to Australia. By 1982 he had found a mining job, which prompted the family to move to Newcastle.
