A Diary Delayed by Max Mannheimer

Never again – Max Mannheimer swore to himself that he never wanted to return to Germany, the land of his tormenters. He had suffered everything that a person could encounter in the inferno created by the Germans: humiliation, forced exile, internment in a ghetto, death of almost his entire family in the gas chamber, concentration camp, hunger, sickness and abuse. By some miracle he survived. But then Mannheimer became acquainted with a young German who had been active in the resistance and started a family with her. For many years he never spoke about his suffering. Only when he thought he was close to death did he decide to record his experiences for posterity in this late diary.
