In 1945, with events fresh in his mind, Jerzy Kwiatkowski sat down to describe his sixteen-month internment at Majdanek concentration camp—everything he endured and witnessed, from the most mundane frustrations of prisoner life under the Nazi regime to the horrors of its darkest excesses. Translated into English for the first time, and illustrated with rare archival images, this valuable historical record and its insights are now available to a wider audience.
