Numbered Days

Yale University Press

This chapter looks at the historical and theoretical considerations that surround the manner through which the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of European Jewish men and women have related their experiences. It looks at the personal diaries of those that lived and survived throughout the experience in an attempt to understand and survey Jewish victims' responses to the genocide they saw. These diaries also constitute one component of their responses—the victims of the genocide produced written testaments for their relatives abroad and for the world at large in order to preserve the memory of the mass extermination that went on. From April through October 1943, for example, Kalman Rotgeber gave testimony about three-and-a-half years of German occupation from a hiding place on the “Aryan” side of Warsaw.
