This is easily one of the most moving and influential books I have had the privilege to read After living through the truly horrific experience of imprisonment in Auschwitz, Charlotte Delbo has managed to turn her pain into art It is a combination of prose, poetry, vignettes, and prose poems At first, the formatting and structure may strike the reader as jarring, but even this has its purpose It is intentionally done in this way to convey the shreds of memory that exist after the rupture of trau [...]

The poems in this book are so painful to read, but also life affirming at the same time can t explain it better than that The first read destroyed me, I ll admit, but I was steeped in a Holocaust Lit class so my atmosphere was heavy Later, on subsequent re reads, it became easier Her poems are accessible, in terms of rhyme and meter, and her themes, while obviously not joyful, are important for us to read and remember Buy this book, put it on a shelf and read a poem once in a while Delbo deserve [...]

Incredibly powerful writing from a French political prisoner, interned in Auschwitz It is refreshing to read an account of the female experience of the camps, especially in such a beautiful combination of poetry and prose The attention devoted to life after liberation and Delbo s return to France makes this something of a landmark this work should be hailed alongside that of Wiesel and Levi as the epitome of Holocaust testimony.

Whew I had to stop, several times, and put this book aside and finished it much later than I thought I would Not only is the subject powerful, but Delbo s writing takes away your breath and makes you ache I thought about giving this book four stars just because it s so emotionally difficult to read, but I don t want anyone to be dissuaded from attempting it by a lower rating Auschwitz and After should be on everyones to read list.

Maggie used this book for many samples and prompts in the survivor writing workshop at USHMM Really some of the best written memoir out there, in my opinion.

Heartbreaking I wrote my undergraduate honors thesis primarily upon this book.

AUSCHWITZ AND AFTER, a trilogy of memoirs by Charlotte Delbo, a French resistance fighter who lost her husband to a firing squad and spent the war in concentration camps, is not an easy read It shouldn t be Her straight forward, often poetic, reflections on her and her co captives internment is like a description she writes of the people in cattle cars being delivered to the camps they expect the worse and find the incomprehensible The details are what stay with me How the constant thirst, the l [...]

4.5 5 Maybe higher This needs to become standard holocaust reading Up there with Levi, Frank, Frankl, and Wiesel Maybe of a stepping stone after those authors though, as the structure and experimental nature of the writing makes it harder to read Plus one requires a good grasp of the history and situation, as Delbo doesn t really give you much of that.I found so many things to like about this sad, sad, sad book Her attempts at communicating the horror, her struggle with memory, and her struggle [...]

Full disclosure This review is only for the first section None of Us Will Return Of all of the Holocaust literature I am reading graduate class on the subject , the language of this is the most resonant A question arises as to whether expository or creative memoir best serves the purposes of witnessing something as humanly tragic as the Holocaust Not to discredit prosaic and expository memoir, but, as in most cases in life who on is going to argue against this the creative wins out, at least wit [...]

Auschwitz and After was a haunting read that was unlike any book I have read about the Holocaust Taken from the perspective of a French woman who had been a part of the French resistance, it relives the experience from a woman who was prosecuted for her activities It is an experimental memoir and truly encapsulates the horrors of the camps with vivid detail that was terrifyingly poetic It was unconventional and at times choppy However, being a fan of poetry, I felt the plight of Delbo on a level [...]

Brilliantly wrote in an unusual way, kind of without structure, but it still works for such a melancholic subject I gave it 4 stars due to the poems that were included, i personally don t have any affiliation for poetry, never have done and never will do, but after surviving Auschwitz, Charlotte is entitled to do what she wants with her book.Aside from that i found this a fascinating insight, and can see why its held in such high regard I found the part about xmas day particularly moving in that [...]

Incredibly depressing and very very good I find that many Holocaust books retroactively frame and apply a certain structure to the whole experience not on purpose, I think, but for the sake of trying to explain what happened to people who weren t there Delbo is good at recreating the experience and emotion of the Holocaust without ascribing a sensible plot that wasn t there in reality It was crazy and it was awful and in many ways it did not end with the war In fact, in many ways Delbo did not a [...]

One of the best memoirs to come out of the Holocaust Charlotte Delbo was not Jewish She was a supporter of the Resistance movement who was arrested and deported along with several other women out of France Charlotte tells her story through a series of vignettes and poems It is a powerful tribute to those who endured whether they survived or ultimately passed away those horrific times The Holocaust must never be forgotten.

This book is one of those good books that you find difficult to say how good it is.Delbo was imprisoned in Auschwitz and Ravensbruck because of her involvement with the French Resistance her husband was killed This was written long after the events and is a blend of poetry and memory.It is readable and wonderful and heartbreaking They really should reach this in school,to be honest.

One of the hardest books I have ever read At times I found myself sobbing, or uncontrollably angry Her gentle words weaved into poetry paint a wall of grief that seems insurmountable It is truly one of the most wonderful books I have ever read, despite the pain and horror I felt These emotions made me thankful for my life and grounded me towards what is truly important.

Even though I ve barely started the first volume of the trilogy, I can tell that the combined narratives will be one of the most powerful Holocaust texts I ve ever read.Delbo s mix of dramatization, poetry, reflection, autobiography, flashback, vignette, and play like acts is impressive.The last volume is the most moving, as it gives the accounts of Delbo s comrades return home.

Chilling first person testimony of the horrors of Auschwitz and After Difficult to describe this work with words like beautiful , accessible and empathising , because it is simultaneously incredibly horrible, alien, and opaque Definitely worth reading, but it will not be easy.

This book is written in brilliant, spare prose and poetry You will never forget it It s nothing like you ve ever read before Even if you ve read a thousand Holocaust books or never wanted to read one at all, you must read this.

A hauntingly beautiful memoir Her prose and poetry invoke feelings that many other survivors have failed to evoke A true insight into the experiences of the Holocaust as well as the survivors guilt felt afterwards Cutting and deeply felt.

One of my favorite works heartbreakingly honest, brilliantly descriptive writing.

This lyrical composition renders the experience of the camps in visceral visual form It is a haunting work, an exquisitely rendered poem of horror.

The best holocaust book I have read The best part is the memoir after the holocaust Five star writing Great literature.

best holocaust book i ve ever read delbo is stark, acute, jarring, and wisething like other holocaust books this woman is amazing.

Incrediblee author s words create a story so multilayered in meaning moved me to tears like no other.Just finished

The most affecting Holocaust memoir I ve ever read, period.

One of the best memoirs I have read about the concentration camps.First, it is written about the experiences of women in the camps And mainly non Jewish women which makes it even rare.Second, it is in three sections The first section was written shortly after the war and is quite poetic and its sparseness is haunting The second section was written years later and has focus and reveals details about her experiences in French jails before being sent to Auschwitz.Thirdly, it is the third section [...]

It is difficult to review this book in a way that would do it justice It is a book which must be read by anyone with an interest in Holocaust literature The structure, the way her experiences are presented and the combination of prose, prose poetry and poetry is unique among the Holocaust literature I have read, and extremely powerful It makes it a slightly challenging read than many of the memoirs which are presented fully in chronological order with one scene leading to the next, connected, w [...]

No summary can do this book justice Delbo s exquisite writing only makes this depiction of time in the camps all the heartrending One can never understand the Holocaust but we must never forget Charlotte Delbo reminds us of that.

This is a great book recounting the experiences of the author and several of her comrades, deported to various prisons and concentrations camps It also, equally powerfully, describes their return and something of their subsequent life.It will shatter you That is good.

Prachtig boek Het is de tweede keer dat ik het lees, maar ik vind het even mooi als de eerste keer Voor ik dit boek las, wist ik niet veel meer over concentratiekampen dan het gebruikelijke het was er heel erg Hoe moet je ook beschrijven hoe het was in zo n kamp Hoe kun je beschrijven wat dat doet met mensen Nou, zo dus Charlotte Delbo heeft een prachtige schrijfstijl, po tisch en tegelijkertijd ongenadig concreet Ik denk dat het een boek is dat je eens in de zoveel tijd moet herlezen En ik hoop [...]
