Smoke Over Birkenau book. Auch fehlen mir die Worte, um den Schrecken und die Torturen, die Liana Millu schildert, geeignet weiter zu geben. Dec 25, 2017 Val Rich rated it really liked it.

Displaced, brutalized, sick, dying, the women wretches of Millu's Birkenau lager are as much buoyed as cast down by what remains of their sentimental or family relations: a husband or lover or son perhaps still alive across the fence in the men's camp, Auschwitz; a hidden pregnancy; a sister unforgivably become a whore in the camp's brothel.

Smoke over Birkenau is not a book about death or hatred," one critic wrote. It is a powerful act of the will to live and a profession of the noblest humanism. The victorious idea of life is woven through every page. Maintaining, cultivating, and instilling in oneself the imperative: You must endure! You must live! - a plan carried out unswervingly despite everything. Szmaglewska, Seweryna (1916-1992).

Liana Millu’s memoir, a unique form of testimonial, may inspire questions on the implications of this kind of personal narrative. Through Millu’s representations of compassion, neorealism offers a way to promote women’s relationships and understand their sensibility and ways of coping with dramatic events.

I read a lot of books about the holocaust, the war, the death camps, concentration camps, etc. I read ghettos biographies, private people's (who survived the camps) biographies. I was brought up and lived in the same community with people who survived buchenwald. but nowhere in the books that I read and in the stories that I heard was the description of the treatment of the prisoners life in the death/concentration/torture camps so detailed to the last item of their food, sleep, work etc. this book filled all the gaps that so often are left unexplained in other books. there were times I had to stop reading. it was getting too much to bear. I am happy I bought this book and read it to the end. I whole heartedly recommend this book to anyone who is interested to know the everyday life of the prisoners in birkenau during ww2. although it is only from 1942 to 1945, it gives more than enough detail of the life there.
Only with her eyes can she kiss the bear twigs and the thorns of the bushes as she walks along
Make it sound like it's a picnic do not like the way this is written it making it very flowery and adding all of this garbage into it it was hell and I think the last thing someone would be thinking about as they passed
Twigs and Thorn bushes would be I wonder if I can eat those really disappointed in this book
Gripping and beautifully written. Another powerful holocaust story of survival in the most extreme and terrifying conditions. Liana is to be praised for her courage and deep inner strength. Her story is one of tragedy and hope.
I don't see how people could live under these conditions. I guess that it is true that people can adjust to any condition. A good, but hard reading for anyone to see how people can live under any conditions.
i guess i'm confused. i am sitting here with a copy of "smoke over birkenau" by seweryna szmaglewska, translated from the polish by jadwiga rynas. henry holt and company n.y. copyright 1947. first printing. Did she change her name?
This is one of my favorite books, one of the few I've kept from college.
Visited Auschwitz this past year and this book tells the horrors that took place there surrounding the author. shipped and received when promised
