This book from 1940, translated here into English, is the story of a survivor of the September 1939 Death March of Lowicz. The events recounted here stand symbolically for the experiences of any and all of the many thousands of ethnic German victims of Polish persecution before and at the beginning of World War Two.

Erhard Wittek's book is no doubt one of the most moving accounts of this tragedy ever written. What you will see in these pages are not only the unfathomable depths that human beings can sink to, but also composure and greatness of soul in the face of a fate worse than death.
