I Was a Boy in Belsen Paperback
'In the last couple of years I realised that, as one of the last witnesses, I must speak out.' Tomi Reichental, who lost 35 members of his family in the Holocaust, gives his account of being imprisoned as a child at Belsen concentration camp.
He was nine-years old in October 1944 when he was rounded up by the Gestapo in a shop in Bratislava, Slovakia.
Along with 12 other members of his family he was taken to a detention camp where the elusive Nazi War Criminal Alois Brunner had the power of life and death.
His story is a story of the past. It is also a story for our times. The Holocaust reminds us of the dangers of racism and intolerance, providing lessons that are relevant today.
