About this title

Synopsis:

The only survivor of his sixty-four-member family, Frank provides the only firsthand account in English of Lublin and the destruction of its Jewish quarter. Amid the horrors and everyday minutia of life under the Nazis, he reflects on the role of faith, the will to live, and the temptation of suicide. Frank also examines survivor guilt, Jewish identity, the psychology of victims and perpetrators, and the role of memory.

About the Author:

Mark Lewis was born in 1968 in Cleveland, Ohio, and was raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. He has published several short stories and a work of fiction titled Suspicions among the Thoughts I May Contribute (1995). He has worked as an editor, reporter, and freelance journalist for newspapers, magazines, and online media. Currently he is writing a novel titled The Discovery of the Amputees.

Jacob Frank was born on January 3, 1913 in Lublin, Poland. He ran away from home as a boy to become a tailor rather than fulfil his father's wish that he become a rabbi. After the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939, Frank was randomly chosen to head the clothing factory at the SS-run Lipowa Labor Camp, managing nearly 450 tailors by the end of 1943. His position put him in contact with such notorious SS officers as Heinrich Himmler, Adolf Eichmann and Odilo Globocnik. A witness to the total liquidation of the immense Lublin ghetto, Frank was the only survivor of his 64-member family. After Lipowa, he was interned in a prison and three other concentration camps, including Natzweiler and Dachau. He emigrated to the United States in 1946, becoming a successful clothing designer and tailor in New York City.
