Diary of Bergen-Belsen: March 1944 - April 1945 [2007]

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published in 2007 by Stiftung niedersächsische Gedenkstätten.

The foreward takes the form of a letter to the author of the original diary written by Wilifried Wiedemann of the Stiftung niedersächsische Gedenkstätten (Lower Saxony Memorials Foundation). Includes a short list of biographical notes, introduction and an epilogue written one month after returning from Germany.

Complete as issued with pull-out pamphlet written by Renata Laqueur titled 'The Story of My Diary from Bergen-Belsen', which includes a curriculum vitae.

On November 3, 1943, her 24th Birthday, Renata Laqueur and her husband Paul Goldschmidt, were ordered by the German Occupying Froce to appear at the former "Dutch Theatre" in Amsterdam. They were transported first to Westerbork, and then on March 15, 1944 , to Bergen-Belsen. Laqueur continued to write in her diary in which she recounts both the horrors of day-to-day life and the yearning for freedom.

Many years "after surviving the hell of Bergen-Belsen," and imbued with a passion to rescue other concentration camp diaries, Laqueur embarked on a mission that took her to Paris, Amsterdam and Munich (she speaks five languages). She returned with thirteen diaries, which she excerpted and analyzed as works of literature in a doctorate in Comparative Literature from New York University in 1971. Now retired, Dr. Renata Laqueur lives in New York City.
The original diary, scribbled in a black school notebook, has been preserved at the Bergen-Belsen Memorial.

Condition is as new. Light fingermarks to the cover, the pages are flawless and the binding is as if it has never been opened. Pull-out leaflet is in the same great condition.
