In the face of death: Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Oranienburg - Erich Altmann
In May 1945, Erich Altmann was 41. He survived the hell of Auschwitz-Birkenau, Buchenwald, Oranienburg an two "death marches". For nearly three years, Erich Altmann found within himself the strength to survive and tell the world of the dimensions of the crime and the extent of the atrocities committed by the Nazis.
At the moment of the Liberation, he composed his eyewitness account practically at one stroke, like a violent cry, but without hatred, in which he revealed the terrifying truth. In his own name and in the name of the millions of murdered victims. Erich Altmann’s account is hitherto unpublished in French.
