Two lbs. of sugar

Document | Accession Number: 1994.A.0349 | RG Number: RG-10.140

Historical fiction narrative describes the experiences of William Eisen (a.k.a. Wolf Ajzowicz): public humiliation of Polish Jews by Germans; death of family members; his internment in a ghetto and many concentration camps, including Skarżysko-Kamienna, Rakow, the Miechow ghetto, Krakow-Plaszow, and Buchenwald; a death march; his reunion with his sister and a cousin; the displaced persons camps of Judenburg, Austria, and Landsberg am Lech, Germany; and his emigration to the United States. Note: this work of fiction contains some inaccuracies (i.e. gas chambers are said to have been used to kill prisoners in Buchenwald; homosexuals are said to have worn green triangles; soap is said to have been made from the fat of Jews; an evacuation hospital is called a MASH Unit; etc.).
