Following the success of Forgotten Voices of the Great War, Lyn Smith visits the oral accounts preserved in the Imperial War Museum Sound Archive, to reveal the sheer complexity and horror of one of human history's darkest hours. The great majority of Holocaust survivors suffered considerable physical and psychological wounds, yet even in this dark time of human history, tales of faith, love and courage can be found. As well as revealing the story of the Holocaust as directly experienced by victims, these testimonies also illustrate how, even enduring the most harsh conditions, degrading treatment and suffering massive family losses, hope, the will to survive, and the human spirit still shine through.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A powerfully moving chronicle" * Daily Express *
"Powerful cries of pain...All of them capture some element of the torment, and of hope....What might seem a monotonous roll of horror stories becomes, under her keen ear, a mosaic of infinite variety...can be read with an assurance that there will be many aspects of Holocaust in them that will be new, remarkable and thought-provoking" -- Martin Gilbert * Financial Times *
"Full of rich insights...There are no greater stories of courage than those of old relatives who sacrificed themselves so that others could survive" * The Jewish Chronicle *
"Deserves maximum space everywhere this autumn... poignant and sometimes horrific reading... it is a timely reminder to appreciate our lives and those we share it with" * The Bookseller *
"probably the most harrowing book I'll ever read...gripping....its subject matter is something that should never be forgotten" * Bookseller *
