"A 'must' for any serious Jewish history collection—and many a general interest holding, as well."—Bookwatch
From the Publisher
An extraordinary collection of photos and the stories behind them, updated and expanded.
In October of 1986, Ann Weiss entered a locked room at Auschwitz and came across an archive of over 2,400 photographs brought to the death camp by Jewish deportees from across Europe during the Holocaust. The photos, both candid snapshots and studied portraits, had been confiscated, but instead of being destroyed they were hidden at great risk and saved. In many cases these pictures are the only remnants left of entire families.
