Josef Jakubowicz was born in Oświęcim in 1925- in that Polish town later to become home to one of the most infamous labour and death camps of the Third Reich – KL Auschwitz. Jakubowicz writes about his life, about his happy childhood in a little community where Jews and Christians lived together in harmony and peace. But Jakubowicz also remembers the dark days, as anti-Semitism slowly infiltrated his little world, as hatred and betrayal became part of daily life. This survivor's story is a riveting, tense document of the Holocaust years, a simply drawn portrait of cruel reality and at the same time a tribute to the strength of the human spirit, a triumph of humanity.
