BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY: HISTORICAL, POLITICAL & MILITARY. In the shouted words of a woman bound for Auschwitz to a man about to escape from the cattle car, "You must do it! If you get out, maybe you can tell the story. Who else will tell it?" Award-winning history author Anthony S. Pitch takes this plea to heart and presents survivors' true accounts in his new work, "Their Crime Was Being Jewish," to remind readers of the horrors that took place so they may never happen again. There are a wide variety of events and life circumstances among the 500 compelling narratives. A GI who liberated Buchenwald said it was worse than a dream as he walked around like inmates "in a trance." With their hair shaved off sisters standing side by side could not recognize each other. The tattooed number on a woman's arm was thought by Texans, after the war, to be a reminder of a good time at a summer camp. "Their Crime Was Being Jewish" is directed at a new generation, too untutored to know much of anything about the Holocaust.
