Summary"Imprisoned in Auschwitz for two years, having eluded death by the narrowest of margins, the man known as Ka-Tzetnik 135633 survived the Holocaust to discover that survival alone would not end his torment. For thirty years, through nightly dreams of terrifying intensity, he remained captive to the horrors of Auschwitz. Finally in 1976 he sought help from Professor Bastiaans, the Dutch psychiatrist who first recognized Concentration Camp Syndrome and successfully treated camp survivors with a therapy involving doses of LSD. Shivitti is the author's extraordinary memoir of that experience." —Book jacket
