Summary
BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY: HISTORICAL, POLITICAL & MILITARY. In the shouted words of a woman bound for Auschwitz to a man about to escape from the cattle car, "You must do it! If you get out, maybe you can tell the story. Who else will tell it?" Award-winning history author Anthony S. Pitch takes this plea to heart and presents survivors' true accounts in his new work, "Their Crime Was Being Jewish, " to remind readers of the horrors that took place so they may never happen again. There are a wide variety of events and life circumstances among the 500 compelling narratives. A GI who liberated Buchenwald said it was worse than a dream as he walked around like inmates "in a trance." With their hair shaved off sisters standing side by side could not recognize each other. The tattooed number on a woman's arm was thought by Texans, after the war, to be a reminder of a good time at a summer camp. "Their Crime Was Being Jewish" is directed at a new generation, too untutored to know much of anything about the Holocaust
