This diary is more interesting and readable than most published diaries, because it's so detailed. Many entries are several pages long. The author had a position of a judge in Bergen-Belsen's makeshift court, which the inmates set up to deal with offenses within their ranks such as theft, etc., and he often wrote about the cases he'd dealt with. Hunger, too, is of course ever-present, and the privations that go with that.

An item of interest: the translator of this diary came to Bergen-Belsen on the same train as Mr. Herzberg and later left on the same train. The translator was only a child at the time and they don't seem to have ever met, but its intriguing all the same. Full circle. ( )
