The entry gate to Auschwitz concentration camp, taken in July 2006

Reading about a visit to the concentrations camps may not be everyone’s idea of good summer reading but this essay, My Visit to Hell,
by Christopher Buckley, previously unpublished is a vivid reminder of our not so distant past.

If you want to read a recent book about a survivor that was published years ago in Europe but only recently here, try Lucky Child by Thomas Buergenthal or Rena’s Promise: A Story of Sisters in Auschwitz by Rena Kornreich Gelissen both candid well told stories of wartime experiences in the camps and beyond.
