Frank Stiffel was a young Jewish student with dreams of a literary career when the Nazis invaded Poland and carried off his family to Treblinka. Stiffel escaped and wandered the land, constantly threatened with capture by the Nazis and their sympathizers. He eventually was discovered and sent to Auschwitz where, because of his simple rule--keep your dignity or die--he survived constant brutality until liberation in 1945. This is a moving document of suffering and quiet strength that has all the immediacy of having been written as it happened--the book was started as a diary in captivity and completed soon after the war.
