The journey : a novel by H. G Adler( Book )

29 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A novel of the Holocaust based on the author's own experiences chronicles the ordeal of one family, forced from their home and struggling to cope with the destruction, deprivation, and death around them, from the perspective of a single survivor. The tragic tale of the Lustig family doctor Leopold; his wife, Caroline; their children, Zerlina and Paul; and Caroline's sister, Ida who are sent to the walled city of Ruhenthal after authorities label them forbidden. Taking place during an unspecified period of war and genocide, the story is based on Adler's experiences at Theresienstadt, a labor camp where he was imprisoned for two and a half years during WWII

The wall : a novel by H. G Adler( Book )

19 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Random House published the first English translation of H.G. Adler's The Journey in 2008, literary critics and historians alike came to recognize Adler as a neglected modern master, comparing him to Joyce, Woolf, Kafka, and Gertrude Stein. Told in a powerful stream-of-consciousness style reminiscent of our finest modernist writers, The Wall is the story of Arthur Landau, a Holocaust survivor struggling to leave behind the horrors of the past and find a foothold in the present. After the war, Arthur returns to Prague in the hope of finding his parents, works in a museum that collects Jewish artifacts, and eventually crosses the border, leaving his homeland and friends for good. Despite the loss of his first wife to the camps, the love of his second wife, Johanna, and their two children anchors him amid the chaotic and competitive world of postwar exiles living in London. Though Adler recreates time and place with stunning descriptive detail, the themes are universal and timeless. The "wall" in front of Arthur will not let him entirely remember the past and thus free himself from nightmares, nor entirely let him forget the past and move on. Though he sees himself as akin to "that first Adam", expelled forever from Paradise, Arthur gradually learns to affirm his life once again through his family and work, a testimony to the human spirit that continues to persevere within him"--

Theresienstadt, 1941-1945; das Antlitz einer Zwangsgemeinschaft. Geschichte, Soziologie, Psychologie by H. G Adler( Book )

61 editions published between 1955 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1955, with a revised edition appearing five years later, H.G. Adler's 'Theresienstadt, 1941-1945' is a foundational work in the field of Holocaust studies. As the first scholarly monograph to describe the particulars of a single camp - the Jewish ghetto in the Czech city of Terezin - it is the single most detailed and comprehensive account of any concentration camp. Adler, a survivor of the camp, divides the book into three sections: a history of the ghetto, a detailed institutional and social analysis of the camp, and an attempt to understand the psychology of the perpetrators and the victims. A collaborative effort between the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Terezin Publishing Project makes this authoritative text on Holocaust history available for the first time in the English language, with a new afterword by the author's son Jeremy Adler.0Translated from German by Belinda Cooper

Auschwitz - Topographie eines Vernichtungslagers Feature by H. G Adler( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nüchtern und präzise schildern Otto Wolken, Rudolf Vrba, Jehuda Bacon, Grete Salus und andere Zeitzeugen den genauen Aufbau des Konzentrationslagers Auschwitz. Der Hörer erfährt, wie Selektionen neu ankommender Häftlinge abliefen und wie die Grausamkeit der vorherrschenden Bedingungen alle zuvor gehörten Gerüchte bei weitem übertraf. Das unmenschliche und erschütternd systematische Vorgehen bei der Vergasung der Häftlinge und Verbrennung der unzähligen Leichen wird ebenso genau geschildert wie die Zustände in Krankenlagern und die Arbeit von Häftlings- und SS-Ärzten. Auch das Schicksal der Kinder in Auschwitz, die Ausbeutung der Gefangenen durch Zwangsarbeit und die Lagerkapelle, die der Unterhaltung der SS diente, werden umfassend thematisiert. Zum Schluss schlägt das Feature einen inhaltlichen Bogen zu der Evakuierung von Auschwitz, den Todesmärschen und letztendlich zur Befreiung der verbliebenen Häftlinge, bevor die Frage thematisiert wird, wie Auschwitz überhaupt möglich war
