Editorial Reviews

Review

Dr. Bernard Helgman's world spirals inward like a chambered nautilus shell. On the outside he is shiny perfect, but inside he is tormented by memories, confusion, and remorse. David Tannenbaum's exquisite novel, Out of the Depths, explores the many losses of a Holocaust survivor-and his lonely struggle to find a meaningful "after Auschwitz" life. When Helgman is accused of unspeakable crimes, his carefully-constructed shell shatters and he must once again endure the unendurable. My heart is broken. Days after finishing this book, I'm still pondering-and crying. ~ JOYCE FAULKNER Award-winning author of In the Shadow of Suribachi, Windshift, and USERNAME David Tannenbaum weaves pathos, humor, and tragic love into one man's powerful story of survivor's guilt ... a guilt so deep it refuses to stay hidden behind the paint of a clown's face. Forced to assist the SS doctors who carried out gruesome concentration camp experiments, Helgman's face was often the last his fellow Jews saw before they succumbed to the atrocities inflicted upon them. Set aside some time and a box of tissues ... you'll need both. ~ STEVE HATHCOCK South Texas Historian Many people are unaware of the extent to which the guards and administrators in the German concentration camps used Jewish prisoners to help run the camp, keep order among the prisoner population and carry out other tasks. Out of the Depths is a story, set in post-war America, of a reconstructive surgeon, Bernard Helgman, who, as a little more than a boy, had found himself side-by-side with Nazi doctors as they carried out their horrific medical experiments. Tannenbaum masterfully shows us the inner turmoil that Helgman suffers every day of his life as he struggles to come to terms with what he did, or didn't do, in the Auschwitz infirmary. It's fiction, but it could have really happened just as Tannenbaum relates it. ~ LEONARD FELMAN Author of Lifelong Learner
