Format: Hardcover
I enjoyed this book so much due to its different perspective of the holocaust. The Hanna Levy-Hass doesn't just talk about the physical torture that prisoners had to endure, but also how there was emotional torture that forced many of the prisoners to become accomplices to the Germans. Her insights about how people lose their humanity and compassion for those around them is amazing. The most impressive part is that she manages to make it through the whole time without losing her sense of morality and compassion. Her unwavering class consciousness is astonishing.

In addition to the diary, her daughter, Amira Hass, has written an excellent introduction and afterward. In both, she discusses her parents lives as survivors of the Holocaust. Both of her parents were Jews who survived concentration camps and attempted to return to their pre war lives. However, due to many factors they, separately, settled in Israel. Their activism as Israeli Communists, fighting against oppression of the Palestinians, is inspiring.

I highly recommend this book for those that want to read about more about the holocaust, from a socialist survivor. Also, for those that seek to hear more about the stories of those that overcame their Holocaust experiances and continued to fight for a better world.
