1944-1945 By Hanna Levy-Hass (220 Pages)Publisher: Haymarket Books, 2009
A unique, deeply political survivor s diary from the final year inside the notorious concentration camp.
Hanna L vy-Hass, a Yugoslavian Jew, emerged a defiant survivor of the Holocaust. Her observations shed new light on the lived experience of Nazi internment. Levy-Hass stands alone as the only resistance fighter to record on her own experience inside the camps, and she does so with unflinching clarity and attention to the political and social divisions inside Bergen Belsen.
Amira Hass, an indispensable voice in her own right as the only Israeli journalist living and writing from with Occupied Territories, offers a substantial introduction and afterword to her mother s work, which addresses the meaning of the Holocaust for Israelis and Palestinians today.
