Statement of Responsibilityeditors, Yehudit Kleiman and Nina Springer-Aharoni.
Summary"The book presents a compilation of excerpts from testimonies about the liberation from Nazi concentration camps in 1945. They have been selected from a voluminous collection of testimonies from the period of the Holocaust taken from the 1960s and kept in the Yad Vashem Archives. This is an attempt to portray through photographs and to describe through testimonies the complexity of the liberation and its special significance for those Jews who remained alive." —Publisher
