Author Info
Elie Wiesel
After a traditional Jewish childhood education, Wiesel was sent to a concentration camp in 1944, when he was 15. His parents and a sister died in the camps, but Wiesel survived Buchenwald and was sent to France after the war, where he eventually studied at the Sorbonne. He became a journalist for a French newspaper, traveling the world in search of stories--largely in the Middle East, where he covered Israel's war for independence in 1948. His Holocaust memoir, NIGHT, was published in 1958. Wiesel settled in the U.S. in the mid-1950s. He worked as a journalist in New York City and began to write prolifically: novels, short stories, essays, and short biographies and sketches. In 1964 he abandoned newspaper work to devote his time to his own writing. He has received numerous awards and academic appointments, and has been an energetic spokesperson for humanitarian causes. In 1986 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
From the Publisher
Editors Note With a foreword by Elie Wiesel, the first book to tell the complete story of Herbert Baum and the Jewish Anti-Fascist resistance in Nazi Berlin This fascinating book tells the story of a group of young Jewish people who had lives filled with intellectual exploration, intense friendships and romances, and dangerous and illegal political action, during one of the most anti-Semitic and regressive regimes in history. The roots of Jewish antifascism in the Communist, Socialist, and Jewish youth movements of pre-Nazi working class Berlin are examined in here. The complete story of Herbert Baum and Jewish antifascism is told through oral and written testimony of survivors, friends, and relatives of group members; Nazi trial documents; and primary documents of the period. Everything fell apart in May of 1942, however, when Baum and a few others went into the massive anti-Soviet and anti-Semitic Nazi propaganda exhibition Das Sowjet-Paradies (Soviet Paradise) and set off several small explosive devices. Unfortunately, a comrade of Baum's was interrogated by the Gestapo and under duress gave them a list of names of many people associated with Herbert Baum. Little by little, people were arrested, put on trial and executed or sent to death camps. This book is a testament to Jewish antifascist resistance in Nazi Germany.
