Day After Day - Odd Nansen

£19.99

Product description

Day after Day, by Odd Nansen.  Putnam and Company, 1949.  Hdbk.  No
dust jacket.  Brown cloth boards, spine
somewhat faded.  600 pp.  Essentially, the vast majority of the pages
in this book are transcribed from diaries kept under unimaginably horrific and
difficult conditions; one section only has had to be reconstructed from memory.  The author was arrested by the occupying
Germans in 1942.  From then on he was
kept in a series of progressively more dreadful forms of imprisonment.  The most harrowing sections describe his
concentration camp experiences, and they are astonishingly vivid and
graphic.  Since the author is a talented
artist, he has provided drawings of some of the ghastly sights he was forced to
witness.  By now we are able to read a
wide range of Holocaust memoirs; this reminds us that it was by no means only
Jews who suffered under Hitler, even if his vicious regime singled them out for
particularly vindictive treatment.  The
translator, Katherine John, deserves to be commended for her lucid and powerful
version of the Norwegian original.
