SummaryThis memoir details the experiences of a Greek Jew in Hitler's concentration camps. Marco Nahon, a physician educated at the University of Beirut, was practicing medicine and living with his family in the small Thracian town of Dhidhimoteichon (Dimotika), already in Nazi hands, when the Germans began rounding up Jews. In 1943, Nahon and his family were deported to Birkenau, the extermination subcamp of Auschwitz, where his wife and young daughter were killed. There he witnessed firsthand the calculated brutality designed by the likes of Eichmann and Speer and implemented by Mengele and others--Jacket.
