Otto Dov Kulka's memoir of a childhood spent in Auschwitz is a literary feat of astounding emotional power, exploring the permanent and indelible marks left by the Holocaust. It is the winner of the Jewish Quarterly-Wingate Prize 2014. As a child, the distinguished historian Otto Dov Kulka was sent first to the ghetto of Theresienstadt and then to Auschwitz. As one of the few survivors he has spent much of his life studying Nazism and the Holocaust, but always as a discipline requiring the greatest coldness and objectivity, with his personal story set to one side. But he has remained haunted by specific memories and images, thoughts he has been unable to shake off. It is translated by Ralph Mandel. "The greatest book on Auschwitz since Primo Levi...Kulka has achieved the impossible". (the panel of Judges, Jewish Quarterly-Wingate Prize).
