THE STORY OF HERMAN DER NORWEGER AUSCHWITZ PRISONER # 79235 , AS TOLD BY HERMAN SACHNOWITZ TO ARNOLD JACOBY - The story of Herman the Norwegian Auschwitz prisoner No. 79235, as told by Herman Sahnowitz to Arnold Jacobi - English edition, New York 2002 - copy with dedication of the author Arnold Jacobi.
One of the few stories written in the first person by a Jewish prisoner documenting the Holocaust of the Jews of Norway and what happened to him in the death camps in Poland. His story deals with the period of his arrest in November 1942, and actually records two and a half years of imprisonment in the labor camps, his stay in Auschwitz until the camp was liquidated and his return to his home in Norway in June 1945. Through his personal story, he actually tells the story of the entire Norwegian Jewry during the Holocaust.
The book was first published in 1976 in the Norwegian language and for this reason was not exposed to a large audience. After being translated into English, the book gained exposure. The book reveals the surprise in which Norwegian Jews were subjected to the German invasion. Herman was determined to publish his story so that "the evil we saw will not repeat itself" as he put it.
