Product Description

In this, the author’s twelfth book, Faitelson tells the exhaustive and authentic story of the escape from the Ninth Fort at Kovno. Faitelson’s original account was published in seven languages. This new edition presents a broad gallery of cynical and cruel Nazi murderers – wild beasts on two legs, the organizers and leaders of the mass murder of the Jews of Kovno, as well as the thousands of Jews brought to the Ninth Fort from central and western Europe. At the same time, there is a description of the “Actions” – the mass murders of men, women, children and the elderly whose only “crime” was to be born to a Jewish mother. At the heart of the story are the corpse-burners, the preparations they made to escape from hell, the escape itself and the fate of the escapees.
