Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER'The ultimate Holocaust testimony.' HEATHER MORRIS, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka's JourneyAfterword by JOHN BOYNE, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas_______________Eddy de Wind, a Dutch doctor and psychiatrist, was shipped to Auschwitz with his wife Friedel, whom he had met and married at the Westerbork labour camp in the Netherlands.

At Auschwitz, they made it through the brutal selection process and were put to work.

Each day, each hour became a battle for survival. For Eddy, this meant negotiating with the volatile guards in the medical barracks.

For Friedel, it meant avoiding the Nazis' barbaric medical experiments.

As the end of the war approached and the Russian Army drew closer, the last Nazis fled, taking many prisoners with them, including Friedel.

Eddy hid under a pile of old clothes and stayed behind.

Finding a notebook and pencil, he began to write with furious energy about his experiences. Last Stop Auschwitz is an extraordinary account of life as a prisoner, a near real-time record of the daily struggle to survive but also of the flickering moments of joy Eddy and Friedel found in each other.

Documenting the best and the worst of humanity, it is a unique and timeless story that reminds us of what we as humans are capable of, but that there is hope, even in Hell. _______________WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:'It's heart-wrenching, but there are pockets of resistance, rays of hope that shine through.''Powerful and ultimately uplifting... with courage and strength you can survive anything.''This is an important work.

We must never forget.'
