Das Antlitz einer Zwangsgemeinschaft", discusses his experiences in Theresienstadt; the Council of Elders in Theresienstadt; his experiences with Dr. Karl Löwenstein; his interactions with Adolf Eichmann in the Theresienstadt book depository; the ways in which Theresienstadt was different from other camps; his philosophical thoughts on truth, and how it relates to the disbelief individuals experienced during the Holocaust; his thoughts on Hannah Arendt’s assertions about the Holocaust; and his reflections on how Löwenstein was perceived by others during the war and his interactions with him after the war.
