No underlining. No highlighting. No margin notes. Clean, square, tight, unmarked copy. Sharp corners. Illustrated with 4 maps/plans and 8 pages of photos. Three appendices. Index. Because the author possessed a few dental tools and rudimentary skills, he was commandeered by the Nazis to work on the teeth of inmates, and later on those of SS officers. At Auschwitz he was forced to crack the jaws of corpses to remove gold teeth and fillings. Includes an first-hand account of the 3 German ocean liners in the Bay of Lubeck, turned into concentration camps, that were tragically sunk by the RAF in May 1945. From the Dust Jacket: "This book is unique among Holocaust memoirs. It is the story of Berek Jakubowicz (now Benjamin Jacobs), a Jewish dental student who in 1941 was deported from his Polish village to a Nazi labor camp and remained a prisoner of the Reich until the last days of the war... Jakubowicz was interned in Buchenwald and Dora-Mittelbau, where he and other inmates assembled V1 and V2 rockets under the direction of Wernher von Braun. He also spent a year and a half in Auschwitz, where he came into contact with the notorious Josef Mengele." Keywords: Jewish Holocaust. WWII. WW2. Nazi Germany. Third Reich. Concentration camps. . First Printing of the First Edition. Hardcover. Blue cloth/Jacket not priced or clipped. 8vo. viii, 231pp..

About About Books

About Books (Genny and Michael Winne, proprietors, formerly of Parsippany, New Jersey) has been selling rare and OP books since 1985.

Our inventory of over 40,000 volumes is especially strong in the specialties listed, but contains fine books in a variety of other fields as well. Because most of our books are stored in protective boxes, rather than on shelves, they cannot be viewed as a whole. If you wish to visit us to examine specific titles, please provide 24 hours notice and we will make them available for your inspection. Phone calls to (702) 750-2722 are welcome, but please, only between the hours of 8am and 10pm (west coast time).
