Inside the gas chambers : eight months in the Sonderkommando of Auschwitz by Shlomo Venezia( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a unique, eye-witness account of everyday life right at the heart of the Nazi extermination machine. Slomo Venezia was born into a poor Jewish-Italian community living in Thessaloniki, Greece. At first, the occupying Italians protected his family; but when the Germans invaded, the Venezias were deported to Auschwitz. His mother and sisters disappeared on arrival, and he learned, at first with disbelief, that they had almost certainly been gassed. Given the chance to earn a little extra bread, he agreed to become a 'Sonderkommando', without realising what this entailed. He soon found himself a member of the 'special unit' responsible for removing the corpses from the gas chambers and burning their bodies. Dispassionately, he details the grim round of daily tasks, evokes the terror inspired by the man in charge of the crematoria, 'Angel of Death' Otto Moll, and recounts the attempts made by some of the prisoners to escape, including the revolt of October 1944. It is usual to imagine that none of those who went into the gas chambers at Auschwitz ever emerged to tell their tale - but, as a 'Sonderkommando', Shlomo Venezia was given this horrific privilege. He knew that, having witnessed the unspeakable, he in turn would probably be eliminated by the SS in case he ever told his tale. He survived: this is his story

Cinq méditations sur la beauté texte enrichi et lu par l'auteur by François Cheng( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En ce temps de misères omniprésentes, de violences aveugles, de catastrophes naturelles ou écologiques, parler de la beauté pourrait paraître incongru, inconvenant, voire provocateur. Presque un scandale. Mais en raison de cela même, on voit qu'à l'opposé du mal, la beauté se situe bien à l'autre bout d'une réalité à laquelle nous avons à faire face. (...) Ce qui est en jeu n'est rien de moins que la vérité de la destinée humaine, une destinée qui implique les données fondamentales de notre liberté."--Editeur
