The Devil's Pendulum

"My manuscript is a significant true portrayal about the horrors of living in constant fear in concentration camps during World War Two. This is a compilation of personal stories conveyed to me by my parents, who were survivors of the treachery, cruelty, atrocities and inhumanities. This dramatic and compelling story is about Auschwitz-Birkenau, where my father was incarcerated for four years, and Ravensbruck, where my mother was incarcerated for two years and tragically lost both of her small children into the ovens of death. I describe their plight, their horrific experiences, their struggles and fight for survival while living on the edge of death in Satan's playground, which was an indescribable living nightmare. I implemented historical facts and dates into the manuscript which blend nicely into this intriguing and engrossing story. I concentrate immensely on the inflicted human tortured soul. I portray the deep human emotions, their innermost thoughts, and psychological changes, as a result of their constant physical agony, brutality and mental torture that they were subjected to, which ultimately changed their lives forever. I vividly describe the impact that was created on them in that hostile and dangerous environment both outside, and especially the conflicts inside the inmates' barracks, which gradually changed every human being forever, and subsequently altered their lives permanently. I strongly emphasize their enduring and immense strong desire to overcome all obstacles in their path, and survive at all costs in spite of adversity in their journey through hell."
