Summary"September 1, 1939, saw the beginning of the Second War in Europe—the beginning of a bestial nightmare called the Holocaust that was the extermination of over 6,000,000 innocent men, women, and children, most of them Jews. Paul Trepman was a young man of Warsaw when the German planes first began to drop bombs that fateful day, and Among Men and Beasts is Trepman's incredible story of his own survival in Eastern Europe during the entire course of the war—until the German surrender to the Allies in May 1945." —Book jacket
