Devastating, eloquent, descriptive, profound, the memoir proves a gem in Holocaust literature. Schupack relates the tragic loss of his family, the loss of his friends, and details the loss of many years of his life, he labeled, The Dead Years. The author begins the memoir with experiences from his childhood, of which quickly turned to the realms of war. Born in 1922, in Radzyn, a small city in central Poland, Schupack describes the machinations of early WW II as Poland fell between the clutches of two armies, first the Russian, then the German. Schupack, then seventeen years old, clearly depicts the German invasion and the anti-Semitic policies immediately enforced. The author reveals his experiences during the war, the constant hunger, the endless privations, the fear of death, the round-ups, the murder of his family, and finally the horrid conditions in the death camps. Schupack also relates his experiences after the war, and of the virulent, relentless anti-Semitism, which permeated throughout Poland, even in lieu of the Holocaust.
How this young man made it through the Holocaust is yet another testimony of the human will to fight and survive. Joseph experienced tremendous losses, including his entire family, which he shares in great detail. Joseph describes his experience, in a way that makes you feel like you are experiencing what he experienced. Its absolutely horrifying that the human race is capable of such brutality and can be so incapable of empathy and compassion for other human beings. It's really sickening. I am thankful men like Joseph found the strength to write about it so that each of us can be aware of our treatment of others and be guarded against thoughts and ideas that put us against one another. It's scared to think we may all vulnerable to such behavior.
I have read many memoirs. Certainly more than fifty. This book will hold you spellbound. A real classic. A page turner. Worth twice the price I paid. Such an honest and heart breaking story. This hard to put down memoir is truly unforgettable. Five stars !
A very heartbreaking and well written memoir, The author not only details the many unimaginable horrors the Nazis inflicted upon the Jews but the hatred all around them before/during and after the war, just for being Jewish. He also shows us that hate doesn't have to win. His courage and character (and others like him, despite their circumstances) are proof of that.
to all those Jews that were slaughtered , simply because they were born Jewish. Schupak has accomplished his goal honoring those souls. I am moved and saddened beyond words. Perhaps the author's final word sums it up best, so I humbly repeat . . . Why?
I am Jewish and many of my family were killed in the holocaust. I read books such as this as a way to maybe know them. Or people like them at any cost. It all breaks my heart. But I know that none of us should forget. So I read.
Personal story of the ravages of the holocaust , with its post holocaust implications Auschwitz, Madjanek, Bergen Belsen. Witten by a strong and courageous young survivor
The Dead Years is an eloquent memoir of a world wide time of deep shame and deep tragedy. A must read of great moral and historic value for every generation.
