By Mark S. Smith

The tale of a guy who survived Treblinka, to be haunted by way of his stories for 50 years—and eventually, to be killed through them
More than 800,000 humans entered Treblinka and less than 70 got here out. Hershl Sperling was once one in all them. He escaped. Why then, 50 years later, did he bounce to his demise from a bridge in Scotland? the reply lies in a long-forgotten, released account of the Treblinka demise camp, written through Hershl Sperling himself within the months after liberation, came across in his briefcase after his suicide, and reproduced the following for the 1st time. Including previously unpublished photos, this book traces the lifetime of a guy who survived 5 focus camps, and details what he needed to do to accomplish this. Hershl's tale, from his adolescence in a small Polish city to the bridge in far flung Scotland, is testomony to the lasting torment of these only a few who survived the Nazis' most productive and ugly loss of life manufacturing facility. the writer individually follows in his subject's footsteps from Klobuck, to Treblinka, to Glasgow.
