Treblinka Survivor: The Life and Death of Hershl Sperling

by Mark S. Smith
£12.99   paperback  The History Press Ltd (2011)

Treblinka Survivor: The Life and Death of Hershl Sperling by Mark S. Smith More than 800,000 people entered Treblinka, and fewer than seventy came out. Some have argued fewer were murdered but the evidence for such an unbelievable figure is strong. Hershl Sperling was one who escaped. Why then, fifty years later, did he jump to his death from a bridge in Scotland? The answer lies in a long-forgotten, published account of the Treblinka death camp, written by Hershl Sperling himself in the months after liberation and discovered in his briefcase after his suicide. It is reproduced here for the first time.
In Treblinka Survivor, Journalist and author Mark S. Smith traces the life of a man who survived seven camps, and what he had to do to achieve this. Hershlís story − which takes the reader through his childhood in a small Polish town to that bridge, is testament to the lasting torment of those very few who survived the Nazisí most efficient death factory. The author personally follows in his subjectís footsteps from Klobuck, to Treblinka, to Glasgow.
