The Last Jew of Treblinka
The Last Jew of Treblinka: A Memoir | Chil Rajchman
From one of the lone survivors of the Treblinka concentration camp comes a devastating memoir of the Holocaust in the tradition of Primo Levis Survival in Auschwitz. Why did some live while so many others perished? Tiny children, old men, beautiful girlsin the gas chambers of Treblinka, all were equal. A central cog in the wheel of Adolf Hitlers Final Solution, the fires of Treblinka were kept burning night and day. Chil Rajchman was twenty-eight when he arrived at Treblinka in 1942. At the extermination camp, he was forced to work as a barber, shaving the heads of victims, and a dentist, pulling gold teeth from corpses. But he escaped eleven months later and survived to tell the shocking and heartbreaking tale of his experienceand of those who didnt make it out alive. Elie Wiesel calls The Last Jew of Treblinka an important, heart-rending contribution to our search for truth. Poignant and powerful, this memoir provides the only survivors record of the horrifying Polish extermination camp. Originally written in Yiddish in 1945, without hope or agenda other than to bear witness, Rajchmans story shows that remembering is sometimes the bravest and most painful act of all.

I don‘t know if I have the words to describe this short memoir of a man sent to a Nazi death camp. His writing was so to the point and candid. He described awful things he saw and had to do to survive. It still shocks me how people can treat others in such horrific ways.

IamIamIam Great review. I'll definitely put this on my TBR. 1w

Last day of the Holocaust Education Beacon School residential today. I was nervous before I arrived, in case the people weren‘t nice or the content was too challenging, but it‘s been brilliant and I needn‘t have worried! I‘m looking forward to bringing all that I‘ve learnt back into school next half term.

Day two of the Holocaust Education Beacon School residential programme. It‘s been so, so good so far. So much information and lots of opportunities to think more deeply about this difficult topic. Two days to go!

Chrissyreadit Oh! I bet it is an amazing experience. 4mo
Connster @Chrissyreadit It really is! I‘ve learnt a ton and still there are two days to go! So interesting! 4mo

Heavy material, no doubt, but such a testimony to what the Nazis did in Treblinka. It is because of men like Chil that we are able to gain an understanding of the horrors of the Holocaust.

Crazeedi So hard to read but so important to realize and never forget 12mo
RavensCarm Extremely hard to read and understand that it was truly his life, truly how things happened in Treblinka. Never forget! 12mo

I‘m ashamed to say that I didn‘t know much about the Nazi death camps until I started watching documentaries on Netflix a few summers ago. Auschwitz gets most of our attention, but it was primarily a labor and concentration camp. Treblinka was a death factory where nearly 1 million Jews were killed in an industrialized manner. There were few survivors and those Jews were forced to remove evidence of the killings. This is an extraordinary document.

Chil Rajchman is one of only a handful of survivors of Treblinka. He recounts the horrors of the extermination camp in a straightforward manner. I was in tears from the very beginning. This is so difficult to listen to but it must be read/listened to and absorbed to fully understand the absolutely gruesome events that were able to occur. We must never let this happen again.

Not sure how much longer this will be a Kindle or Google Play deal. I just got a copy. This author was among the only survivors of Treblinka.
