Darkness casts no shadow by Arnošt Lustig( Book )

During WWII it was not unusual for "death trains" to cross Europe loaded with thousands of starving Jews. Having spent his teenage years in concentration camps, Arnost Lustig found himself on one of these transports in 1945, on the way to his own death. Along with a close friend, who was also a teenager, he made an incredibly daring escape. This is the story of that escape, and the weeks that the two boys spent in the dark forests of Germany trying to survive against hunger and cold, to avoid capture by the Germans, and to return to their native Prague. On the psychological plane, the book explores the subconscience minds of the boys as they experience extreme fear, starvation, and physical exhaustion in their desperate flight toward freedom against such incredible odds. -- Publisher description

With the Second World War "at the fringes and uneasy borders of his characters," the author tells of "a German prostitute assigned to Prague, a girl in a Nazi home for orphans, and a young woman working as a cashier in a movie theater [as they] lose themselves in a world of cruelty and collapsing social order while their inner worlds teem with the fascination of life--sexual fantasy, naive idealism, vengefulness, inchoate visions of justice."--Jacket

Children of the Holocaust by Arnošt Lustig( Book )

11 editions published between 1976 and 1998 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is a landmark of Holocaust Literature and among the finest works of fiction produced by any writer since World War II. The center of Arnost Lustig's impressive oeuvre, the collection expresses his faith in the power of individuals - especially children - to shape their own destinies. These profoundly moving stories transcend the gruesome realities of the camps; their strength is that of the human spirit, the individual's ability to achieve moral triumph through action. Lustig's fiction shines among this century's outstanding literary achievements." "This volume contains sixteen short stories previously published under the titles Diamond of the Night and Night and Hope and the novel Darkness Casts No Shadow. Conceived and written as a whole, they are published here together for the first time."--BOOK JACKET
Diamonds of the night : = Démanty noci by Jan Němec( Visual )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2019 in Czech and Undetermined and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adapted from a novel by Arno₍t Lustig, the film closely tracks two boys who escape from a concentration-camp transport and flee into the surrounding woods, a hostile terrain where the brute realities of survival coexist with dreams, memories, and fragments of visual poetry. With this simultaneously harrowing and lyrical debut feature, Jan Nemec established himself as the most uncompromising visionary among the radical filmmakers who made up the Czechoslovak New Wave
Fighter( Visual )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jan Wiener, 77, professor and wilderness guide. Arnošt Lustig, 72, professor and author. Jan Wiener escaped from Nazi occupied Prague at the age of 19, beginning a six-year exodus through Yugoslavia and Italy. He ended the war as a flyer for the Royal Air Force in England. Arnošt Lustig spent his adolescence in Nazi concentration camps. He survived to become an acclaimed Czech novelist, screenwriter and journalist. Jan and Arnošt left Czechoslovakia as exiles from the Communist regime. They met in the U.S. in 1978, and their mutual background inspired a close friendship. In the summer of 1998, we accompanied Jan as he retraced the steps of his escape through Europe. Arnošt, long interested in writing a story based on Jan's life, was invited to join us on the journey."--Title screens. Despite similar European Jewish backgrounds, one is a fighter and the other a philosopher, and well into the journey, the duality of their memories sparks a fight that threatens their friendship. Each has notions of the past that are as opposed as their temperaments, and it seems that for those who survived the war, it may not ever be over. By juxtaposing two extraordinary personal histories, the film ponders unanswerable questions about memory, imagination, history, and that elusive thing called truth

Waiting for Leah by Arnošt Lustig( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in Czech and English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

September 1944 in Terez-n, the ghetto created by the Nazis in northern Bohemia as a staging post for the transport of Jews to Poland. The war is going badly for the Germans, and they are in a hurry to complete their "Final Solution". Rumours are rife among the Jews in the ghetto, even though nothing definite is known of the Nazis' intentions, or perhaps it is deliberately not believed. Leah, an 18-year-old girl from Holland, has, like most of those around her, given up living in accordance with her beliefs. The narrator is a lad of seventeen, likewise still relatively unaffected by the moral disintegration around him. By chance he encounters Vili Feld, a pre-war acquaintance who had seduced his young girlfriend. Vili takes the narrator to the tiny attic he shares with Leah. Thus begins an erotic entanglement that ends with the narrator and Vili being sent to their deaths in the East
