The Trumpets of Jericho is really two novels in one, the rousing story of one of the more remarkable episodes in the annals of Jewish resistance to the Nazis—the prisoner uprising at the Auschwitz- Birkenau death camp in October, 1944—and the just as inspiring account of the four young Jewish women arrested and brutally tortured for their role in the revolt. In Trumpets, J. Michael Dolan, a lifelong student of the SS Vernichtungslagers, or extermination camps, has produced a work that he believes will move you as deeply as its subject has him. Aside from painting the most definitive picture to date of this particular slice of history, he explores, among other themes, religion and the existence of God, the psychology of genocide, friendship and romantic love, sexual and other pathologies, the nature of good and evil, right and wrong. Above all, he shows how the most monstrous single crime ever committed was in the end no match for the indomitability, the grandeur of the human spirit.

No one had ever been so far in alternative history and even changed our own History into a parallel or rewritten History which would comme and crush the first, the True one, in order to take its place. For what reasons? By what means? This book, which will remain a fiction as long as its last prediction is not completed, clearly explains. If you are an atheist, you will be glad to learn that the religions of the Book are the result of a huge manipulation of future, whose aims have served a desperate cause thanks to a providential technical innovation. This sacrilegious book takes place in a dimension which has been neglected for too long (the time) and deciphers an unimaginable truth. On its way, it demythologizes the flying objects from the past (long before aircraft) by identifying them, not as extraterrestrial vehicles, but as aircraft come from the Future of the Earth itself. It is the end of an immense taboo, which opens the way to a future permanently interacting with a past that we believed unique so far. This book is a major progress in the dimension of time, which links Man to a Future... he has already lived!

In this literary study of memoirs describing at first hand the horrors of German concentration camps, the principal question asked is: How did the survivors find the words to talk about experiences hitherto unknown, even unimaginable? Beyond being a mere analysis of discourse, Narrating the Holocaust reflects the situations in camp that triggered these responses, and shows how the professional authors adapted certain literary genres (e.g. the travel story, the Hassidic tale) to serve as models for communication, while the vast majority who were not trained as writers merely used the form of the report. A comparison between these memoirs and the more frequently discussed camp novel identifies the different narrative strategies by which the two are determined. Most of the 130 texts discussed here were published in German between l934 and the present; some famous Italian, French and Polish texts have also been included for comparison.

»Thomas Harding eröffnet einen neuen Blick auf das Gift des Nazismus und einen seiner tödlichsten Vollstrecker.« The Times Thomas Harding kannte seinen Großonkel Hanns Alexander als einen freundlichen Mann mit viel Familiensinn, der ein bürgerliches Leben als Bankangestellter in London geführt hatte, sich für die Synagoge engagierte und gerne Witze machte. Seine jüdische Familie stammte aus Berlin und war in den 1930er-Jahren in letzter Minute nach England ins Exil entkommen. Das wussten alle. Ansonsten wurde über den Krieg nicht gesprochen. Erst nach dem Tod von Hanns Alexander erfuhr Harding, dass er ein Nazi-Jäger gewesen war. Er hatte Rudolf Höss, den nach Kriegsende untergetauchten Kommandanten von Auschwitz, in seinem Versteck auf einem Bauernhof in Norddeutschland aufgespürt und so dafür gesorgt, dass ihm der Prozess gemacht wurde.

In the life stories of holocaust survivors, biblical imagery can be invoked to explicate the unexplainable, to make real the unreal. This text examines the role of Genesis in the autobiographies of survivors, those who were the targets of genocidal attack. Three main concerns converge: the literary nature of Biblical allusion, the contextual history of the Holocaust, and Midrashic considerations that arise from biblical reference. After setting the groundwork of autobiographical theory, intertextuality, and the Midrashic tradition, the chapters examine references to Adam and Eve's expulsion from paradise, Noah's Ark, the Tower of Babel, the Akeda, Jacob's struggle with the angle, and Cain's murder of Abel. Of particular importance is the ways in which these allusions shed light both on the original text and on the act of genocide perpetrated by the Nazis.
