More than half of them--men, women and children--were brought hundreds and even thousands of miles across Europe to their deaths, forced into sealed railway trucks and shunted towards the unknown. Who were these people? Where did they come from? At what point did they know what was to become of them? How did they conduct themselves in these final days, and hours? Here, Martin Gilbert relates the fate of Jewish communities as far scattered as France and Rumania, Holland and Greece, plucked out from every corner of Europe, uprooted from their homes, separated from their loved ones, tortured, starved, shot and gassed, under barbaric conditions. On their way to death, no torment was spared them. Their journeys were a transition from hardship to hell: millions of unknown sagas of tragedy, courage, humanity and despair. Yet some, miraculously, survived. ” (publisher description) . Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) Holocaust. Light shelf wear. Very good condition in good jacket. (HOLO2-102-30), HOLO8, bibliog4.
