From Our Archive: Memoirs of the Deported Prisoner No. 70790

“The same nightmare haunted me: how could a beast like him, be the leader of such a great nation, of a European nation who gave so many treasures to the world and so many great minds.”

This is an excerpt from page 80 of Stefan Izsak’s book “The Limitable Hell: the memories of the Deported Prisoner No.70.790.” A transcript of this book is stored in the archive available at the Strochlitz Institute for Holocaust Research.  Materials like these allow students to create meaningful and informed connections with their research at the Weiss-Livnat International MA in Holocaust Studies Program, and we are proud to offer students full access to these materials.
