Employing the rich testimony of almost three hundred survivors of the slave-labor camps of Starachowice, Poland, Christopher R. Browning draws the experiences of the Jewish prisoners, the Nazi authorities, and the neighboring Poles together into a chilling history of a little-known dimension of the Holocaust. Combining harrowing detail and insightful analysis on the Starachowice camps and their role in the Holocaust, Brownings history is indispensable scholarship and an unforgettable story of survival.

Recensioner i media

"A master historian of intimate tragedy." -- Moment Magazine "A chilling account." -- The News & Observer "Extraordinary and revealing. Browning powerfully and convincingly vindicates the use of survivor testimony as a precious source for the reconstruction of the past." -- Jewish Review of Books "A wonderfully rich, nuanced book. A major work by a major historian of the Holocaust." -- David Blackbourn, author of The Conquest of Nature: Water, Landscape, and the Making of Modern Germany "Remembering Survival is a remarkable book about life and death in a little-known Nazi slave-labor camp as seen from the perspective of Jewish survivors. It brilliantly demonstrates how postwar testimonies can become the building blocks for the historical reconstruction of an otherwise hardly documented past. Like Brownings Ordinary Men, this book will become a must-read." -- Saul Friedlander, author of the Pulitzer Prizewinning Nazi Germany and the Jews, 19331945 "Christopher Browning proves himself once again our indispensable guide through the cruelty and sadness of the larger Holocaust within which his account unfolds. But more: he wrestles agonizingly with the painful question of Polish complicity and the scandalous German acquittal of a monstrous perpetrator. His readers as well as those whose suffering he has recorded stand in his debt." -- Charles Maier, author of Among Empires "Christopher Browning has written what should become a standard work of Holocaust history, a counterpoint to his classic, Ordinary Men. Remembering Survival rests on the testimony of victims whose searing memoriesdeepen our knowledge of a neglected part of the Holocaust." -- Michael R. Marrus, author of The Holocaust in History "A breakthrough in Holocaust historiographythis is vintage Browning." -- Yehuda Bauer, author of The Death of the Shtetl "Browning is a meticulous and disciplined researcher. What emerges is a highly credible and deeply shocking account of a slave-labor camp where the cruelty and brutality is comparable to the more publicized extermination camps like Treblinka and Auschwitz. An excellent addition to the field of Holocaust studies." -- Booklist
