  • In my handsIn my hands : memories of a Holocaust rescuer

    Opdyke, Irene Gut, 1921-

    "In My Hands began as one non-Jew's challenge to any who would deny the Holocaust. Much like The Diary of Anne Frank, it has become a profound document of an individual's heroism in the face of the greatest evil mankind has known. In the fall of 1939 the Nazis invaded Irene Gut's beloved Poland, ending her training as a nurse and thrusting the sixteen-year-old Catholic girl into a world of horrors that somehow gave her the strength to accomplish what amounted to miracles. Brutally abused and left for dead by Russian soldiers, Irene escaped into German-occupied territory, where she was forced to work for the German army. Her Aryan features landed her a job in the relative safety of an officers' dining room. With access to food and supplies, as well as the dinner conversations of SS officials, Irene was able to smuggle nourishment and information to the Jews in the ghetto, transport work camp prisoners to a forest enclave, and ultimately hide a dozen Jews in the home of the Nazi major for whom she was housekeeper. A harrowing and deeply affecting story of resistance and an extraordinary memoir of one young woman's belief in humanity, In My Hands stakes an impressive claim as a contemporary classic"--Page 4 of cover.

  • Masters of deathMasters of death : the SS-Einsatzgruppen and the invention of the Holocaust

    Rhodes, Richard, 1937-

    "In Masters of Death, Richard Rhodes gives full weight, for the first time, to the part played by the Einsatzgruppen - the professional killing squads deployed in Poland and the Soviet Union, early in World War II, by Himmler's SS. And he shows how these squads were utilized as the Nazis made two separate plans for dealing with the civilian populations they wanted to destroy." "Drawing on Nuremberg Tribunal documents largely ignored until now, and on newly available material from eyewitnesses and survivors, Richard Rhodes has given us a book that is essential reading on the Holocaust the World War II."--Jacket.
