READING: In 1943, na de tweedeling van Italië, met de koning en de geallieerden in het zuiden en Mussolini in het noorden, trok Primo Levi als verzetsstrijder de bergen in, maar werd al na enkele maanden opgepakt. Als jood werd hij naar Auschwitz gedeporteerd, vanwaar hij als een van de weinigen terugkeerde. Onmiddellijk na de bevrijding schreef hij, aanvankelijk uit een chaotische, blinde drang Is dit een mens, dat wordt beschouwd als een van de klassieke getuigenissen over de jodenvervolging.

Lale Sokolov staat vanaf dan bekend als gevangene 32407. De SS-officieren benoemen hem tot 'Tätowierer', tatoeëerder. Tweeënhalf jaar lang is hij degene die van duizenden gevangenen een nummer moet maken. Zoals van Gita, vanaf dan gevangene 34902. Terwijl hij gedwongen wordt haar te brandmerken, kerft zij haar naam voor altijd in zijn hart. Na drie jaar wordt Gita op dodenmars gestuurd en komt Lale in een ander kamp terecht. Beiden weten te ontsnappen en gaan op zoek naar elkaar. Gedurende zeventig jaar zwijgen Lale en Gita over het begin van hun relatie. Pas na Gita's dood durft Lale hun uitzonderlijke overleversverhaal te delen. De tatoeëerder van Auschwitz toont de moed van twee jonge mensen en de kracht van liefde onder de meest extreme omstandigheden.

The Book Jewish Doctors and the Holocaust

The Publisher Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
Release Date2019-01-14
Genre History
Pages 249
ISBN 9783110593754
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This is the first attempt to explain how Jewish doctors survived extreme adversity in Auschwitz where death could occur at any moment. The ordinary Jewish slave labourer survived an average of fifteen weeks. Ross Halpin discovers that Jewish doctors survived an average of twenty months, many under the same horrendous conditions as ordinary prisoners. Despite their status as privileged prisoners Jewish doctors starved, froze, were beaten to death and executed. Many Holocaust survivors attest that luck, God and miracles were their saviors. The author suggests that surviving Auschwitz was far more complex. Interweaving the stories of Jewish doctors before and during the Holocaust Halpin develops a model that explains the anatomy of survival. According to his model the genesis of survival of extreme adversity is the will to live which must be accompanied by the necessities of life, specific personal traits and defence mechanisms. For survival all four must co-exist.

Genre Biography & Autobiography
Pages 277
ISBN 0826263003
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: At the age of twenty-five, Primo Levi was sent to Hell. Levi, an Italian chemist from Turin, was one of many swept up in the Holocaust of World War II and sent to die in the German concentration camp in Auschwitz. Of the 650 people transported to the camp in his group, only 15 men and 9 women survived. After Soviet liberation of the camp in 1945, Levi wrote books, essays, short stories, poetry, and a novel, in which he painstakingly described the horrors of his experience at Auschwitz. He also spent the rest of his life struggling with the fact that he was not among those who were killed. In Primo Levi and the Politics of Survival, Frederic D. Homer looks at Primo Levi's life but, more important, shows him to be a significant political philosopher. In the course of his writings, Levi asked and answered his most haunting question: can someone be brutalized by a terrifying experience and, upon return to "ordinary life," recover from the physical and moral destruction he has suffered? Levi used this question to develop a philosophy positing that although man is no match for life, he can become better prepared to contend with the tragedies in life. According to Levi, the horrors of the world occur because of the strength of human tendencies, which make relationships between human beings exceedingly fragile. He believed that we are ill-constituted beings who have tendencies toward violence and domination, dividing ourselves into Us and Them, with very shallow loyalties. He also maintained that our only refuge is in education and responsibility, which may counter these tendencies. Homer calls Levi's philosophy "optimistic pessimism." As Homer demonstrates, Levi took his past experiences into account to determine that goodwill and democratic institutions do not come easily to people. Liberal society is to be earned through discipline and responsibility toward our weaknesses. Levi's answer is "civilized liberalism." To achieve this we must counter some of our most stubborn tendencies. Homer also explores the impact of Levi's death, an apparent suicide, on the way in which his work and theories have been perceived. While several critics discount Levi's work because of the nature of his death, Homer argues that his death is consistent with his philosophy. A book rich in brutally honest philosophy, Primo Levi and the Politics of Survival compels one to look at serious questions about life, tragedy, optimism, solidarity, violence, and human nature.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Losbandigheid, lust en liefde, moord en doodslag, triomfen en tragedies; de Griekse mythen en sagen zijn wilder en woester dan het leven zelf. Deze verhalen bieden alles wat een lezer zich kan wensen. De oude Grieken inspireerden onder anderen Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce en Walt Disney. In de handen van Stephen Fry komen de verhalen opnieuw tot leven. We worden verliefd op Zeus, we aanschouwen de geboorte van Athena, we zien hoe Kronos en Gaia wraak nemen op Ouranos, we huilen met koning Midas en we jagen met de even beeldschone als meedogenloze Artemis. Stephen Fry haalt deze verhalen op uit de oudheid en geeft ze hun welverdiende plek in onze moderne tijd.
