One of the most remarkable Holocaust memoirs ever written. It is the story of a young man who endured the full brunt of Nazi horror. He lived to tell the tale not only of the Lodz ghetto and Auschwitz-Birkenau (where his parents perished in the gas chambers) but of a further three concentration camps - Althammer, Dora and Bergen-Belsen. He survived it all, but his brother was murdered, as were six million of his people.
Abraham Biderman has written his book to keep a promise to his mother. "Remember, remember what they did to us!" were her last words to him. In turn, he hopes that 'The World of My Past' will serve as a legacy for future generations to learn about and remember what happened to humanity in the middle of the twentieth century.
This is a riveting personal testimony and a searing indictment of those who perpetrated and acquiesced in some of the most hideous events in human history.
