~i~First edition in English of a harrowing account of the fate of boys in Auschwitz, written by a survivor, who later, as a witness at the Eichmann trial expresseded 'I do not see myself as a writer who writes literature. This is a chronicle from the planet Auschwitz. I was there for about two years. The time there is not the same as it is here, on Earth. (…) And the inhabitants of this planet had no names. They had no parents and no children. They did not wear [clothes] the way they wear here. They were not born there and did not give birth... They did not live according to the laws of the world here and did not die. Their name was the number K. Tzetnik' (Translated to English by Tomer Golan, link to the trial testimony on YouTube).
