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

4 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 99 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

Per questo ho vissuto : la mia vita ad Auschwitz-Birkenau e altri esili by Sami Modiano( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Italian and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quel giorno ho perso la mia innocenza. Quella mattina mi ero svegliato come un bambino. La notte mi addormentai come un ebreo. Come tanti sopravvissuti all'Olocausto, per molti anni Sami Modiano è rimasto in silenzio. In che modo dare voce al dolore di un'adolescenza bruciata, di una famiglia dissolta, di un'intera comunità spazzata via? Nato nella Rodi degli anni Trenta, un'isola nella quale ebrei, cristiani e musulmani convivono pacificamente da secoli, Sami non conosce la lingua dell'odio e della discriminazione. Ma quando le leggi razziali colpiscono la sua terra, all'improvviso si ritrova bollato come diverso. E a tredici anni, nell'inferno di Auschwitz-Birkenau, vedrà morire familiari e amici fino a rimanere solo al mondo a lottare per la sopravvivenza. Al miracolo che lo porta fuori dal campo non seguono tempi facili: Sami si ritrova in prima linea con l'esercito sovietico ed è poi costretto a fuggire a piedi attraverso mezza Europa per poi giungere in un'Italia messa in ginocchio dalla guerra. Dopo due anni di lavoretti malsicuri e pessimi alloggi, ma rallegrati dagli amici e dalla scoperta dell'amore, appena diciassettenne Sami sceglie di nuovo di andarsene, questa volta in Congo belga. Qui gli arriderà il successo professionale ma lo attendono nuovi pericoli, allo scoppio della guerra civile. La storia di Sami Modiano è una trama intessuta di addii e partenze alle quali lui ha sempre opposto la determinazione a riappropriarsi delle sue radici

The Cracow Ghetto pharmacy by Tadeusz Pankiewicz( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Italian and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tadeusz Pankiewicz (November 21, 1908 in Sambor - November 5, 1993 buried in Kraków), was a Polish Roman Catholic pharmacist, operating in the Kraków Ghetto during the Nazi German occupation of Poland. He was recognized as "Righteous Among the Nations" by Yad Vashem on February 10, 1983, for rescuing countless Jews from the Holocaust. Pankiewicz studied at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. In 1933, he took over the proprietorship of the "Under the Eagle" pharmacy (Apteka Pod Orłem) founded in 1910 by his father Jozef. The pharmacy was situated on Plac Zgody (formerly Mały Rynek square) in Kraków's Podgórze district. Its prewar clientele included both Gentile Poles and Jews. Under the German Nazi occupation of Poland during World War II, Podgórze district was closed off in March 1941 as a ghetto for local area Jewry. Within the walls of the Kraków Ghetto there were four prewar pharmacies owned by non-Jews. Pankiewicz was the only proprietor to decline the German offer of relocating to the gentile (non-Jewish) side of the city. He was given permission to continue operating his establishment as the only pharmacy in the Ghetto, and reside on the premises. His staff were given passage permits to enter and exit the ghetto for work. The often-scarce medications and pharmaceutical products supplied to the ghetto's residents, often free of charge, substantially improved their quality of life. In effect, apart from health care considerations, they contributed to survival itself. In his published testimonies, Pankiewicz makes particular mention of hair dyes used by those disguising their identities and tranquilizers given to fretful children required to keep silent during Gestapo raids. The pharmacy became a meeting place for the ghetto's intelligentsia, and a hub of underground activity. Pankiewicz and his staff, Irena Drozdzikowska, Helena Krywaniuk, and Aurelia Danek, risked their lives to undertake numerous clandestine operations: smuggling food and information, and offering shelter on the premises for Jews facing deportation to the camps
