Books on the Holocaust Written by Survivors

April 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 180

Elie Wiesel, formerly known as Eliezer Wiesel of Singhet, has experienced the Holocaust first-hand. The details written in his novel, "Night" which one the Nobel Prize. In night, Elie writes of his experience of the Holocaust. From the disbelief of the scenario, to the fearless result of its devastation. He writes of how his teacher warned the Jews of Singhet of the German's treachery and how the Jews pointed not at the German's but at the sage. Then writes Elie of how hope hangs on all the way until they see, in first person, a death camp...and it's terrors. He writes of his family separation, how he loses everyone but his father, and the transition into the concentration camp of Auschwitz. After the transition, Elie writes of experiencing day-to-day survival measures, "check-ups", and not losing his dad. As the curtains drop on WWII, Elie writes of what happens as the red front nears Auschwitz. He writes of the journey to Buchenwald and its terrifying experience. Then Elie writes of how both WWII and his dad's life nears its end at Buchenwald.

"I have lived a Thousand Years" is another book written about the Holocaust by Elli Friedmann. She writes of her transition to facing the realism of the Holocaust. How her dreams were right at her doorsteps but taken away just as quick. How she lost her brand new bike given to her for her birthday. And ultimately how she was treated in the Holocaust. Such experiences written was fitting over 100 in a cart. How peers of her in school teased her for being Jew. How her human status was lowered down to a swine within Auschwitz. What's more, you get to hear in on the details of how Jews of the Holocaust were treated. Such as the time Elli was eating with her mother in the death camp, and found worms in the soup, or how 130 Jews were stuffed in wagons transporting the Jews to-and-fro. Therefore, if you thought you eat the worst foods, or have been stuffed with others forcibly, think again.

The last book I'm going to review, is also the most popular one: "Anne Frank: A Diary of a Young Girl." Written by Anne Frank into her "Kitty"(the dairy). She writes of how she is forced to go into hiding as the Holocaust dawned in 1942. Anne Frank goes into hiding with 8 other people including her family. They hid in her father's workplace "annexe" which hid them for 2 years. Within these 2 years, Anne writes in Kitty first of her love-life and anything you'd expect in a normal diary hence she was a normal girl. All 8 of the hiding members were arrested because of a traitor whose name untold. After the Holocaust, only Mr. Frank survives the concentration camps. Her "Kitty" is later found by 2 of her Christian friends; Elli and Meap in a pile of papers the German's deemed unimportant near the annexe.
