After a lifetime of meticulously researched historical writing on the Nazi regime and the Holocaust, Otto Dov Kulka finally confronts his personal experience of Auschwitz, where he was incarcerated as a child. In ten transcribed tape recordings, he reconstructs its topography, its routines and - in vivid flashes - scenes whose absurdity and strangeness say more than any objective description could. This profoundly important testimony comes as close as is perhaps possible to describing the indescribable.
