"an extraordinary account of his life as a prisoner, and a near real-time record of his daily struggle to survive"

Believed to be the only book written inside the camp, this memoir, by the last Jewish doctor to graduate from Leiden University in the Netherlands during the Second World War, is an extraordinary account of his life as a prisoner, and a near real-time record of his daily struggle to survive. But it also records fleeting moments of joy with his wife, Friedel, who was transported with him. While separated, they managed to pass notes through the fence, and occasionally, steal a brief embrace. The author's son Melcher de Wind will front the publicity campaign on publication.
