Beschreibung:

Bension Varon has given the world two great gifts: the publication for the first time ofthe remarkable 1946 Buchenwald memoir of Hans Bergas and a riveting account of
Bergas' equally remarkable life. Bergas, a highly secular German Jew, was first
known to Bension Varon as the brother-in-law of his wife's uncle. Far transcending
genealogical interest, Varon's painstaking research has revealed the many identities
of Hans Bergas: an impassioned Social Democrat, who battled both fascist and
communist threats to Germany's fledgling, interwar democracy; a member of the anti-Nazi
Resistance in France, who aided other escapees of the Nazi regime; a victim of
capture and savage torture by the Gestapo; a years-long "political" inmate in
Buchenwald, active in the camp resistance; and a gifted chronicler of life in
Buchenwald and the detail of Nazi depravity. In this volume, Bergas emerges like a
lost treasure from history's attic, precious both in itself and for what it reveals about
its troubled times.
