Olga Lengyel tells, frankly and without compromise, one of the most horrifying stories of all time. This true, documented chronicle is the intimate, day-to-day record of a beautiful woman who survived the nightmare of Auschwitz and Birchenau. This book is a necessary reminder of one of the ugliest chapters in the history of human civilization. It was a shocking experience. It is a shocking book.

Review: Five chimneys This is the grim story of Auschwitz, which with its companion camp, Birkenau, comprised slave camp-cum-extermination camp. To the one went the reasonably able bodied, to the other the old, the young, the sick, the useless, the “”dangerous””. A personal experience story which should be read- just as the horror pictures should be seen – by the very people who will studiously avoid them. Here- virtually blow by blow- is the picture of what it was like to be uprooted from professional life in a mid-European city and turned into little better than a beast, scrambling and fighting for scraps of food, beaten, tortured, starved, left in filth and degradation. The text has survived the ordeal of double translation (from French and Hungarian) by its essential vitality.
