So with Kulka's work: this is the product of a master historian – ironic, probing, present in the past...His memory is in the service of deep historical understanding, rendered in evocative prose that is here eloquently translated from Hebrew.

Synopsis

In a life dedicated to studying and writing about Nazism and the Holocaust, Otto Dov Kulka has set to one side his experiences as a child inmate at Auschwitz. Breaking years of silence, Kulka brings together the personal and historical in a devastating, at times poetic, account of the concentration camps and the private mythology he constructed.

Reviewed by Ian Thomson on Feb 24 2013

Landscapes of the Metropolis of Death...is one of the essential books to emerge in recent years. If the Nazi crime cannot be reversed by the writer's pen, at least it can be chronicled and remembered. Kulka has done that and very much more.
