    One thought on “The Liberation of the Camps: The End of the Holocaust and Its Aftermath”

    1. An excellent account of the bittersweet road from camp inmate to survivor and the reclamation of shattered lives.Dan Stone is professor of modern history, Royal Holloway, University of London. He has published fifteen books on the Holocaust, genocide, and twentieth-century European history.In a highly readable style Dan Stone describes the moment of liberation by Allied armies which sadly came too late to the many thousands who died in the following weeks as the Allies struggled to get the neces [...]

    2. “The Liberation of the Camps” is a book that manages to make itself unique in a history genre that can feel a bit crowded at times.What sets the book apart is the liberal use of primary sources from a variety of different situations that occurred after liberation. Many of them, including the fact that many Survivors were kept in the camp for a long period after the actual liberation, are unknown to many people. It’s a very comprehensive resource for those with an interest in Holocaust hist [...]

    3. Not quite what I was looking for as I want to hear how people personally dealt with leaving the camps and trying to reenter life. Stone's book is a scholarly text and it examines much of what happened with the camps so we leave with an understanding of how "liberation" was not what we would normally think of for camp survivors. He does get some first-person voices in the mix, which is good to hear, but most of it is his analysis of how the Allies handled/mishandled what they found.

    4. "Chiudo gli occhi. Questo non può essere il XX secolo, penso. Cerco di rammentare le capacità di redenzione dell'uomo. Non me ne viene in mente alcuna." - Markus J. Smith, Dachau. The Harrowing of Hell (cit. a p. 52)

    5. I've read literally hundred of books about the Holocaust predominantly memoirs of survivors. Often the books will end at the point just after liberation and I have often been left wanted to understand more about how that individual has attempted to live a normal life after leaving through such atrocities, often losing their whole families.This book “The Liberations of the Camps” by Dan Stone looks into the liberations of prisoners during WWII whether from Death camps such as Auschwitz or wor [...]

    6. The Liberation of the Camps was an eye-opener for me. It is not that I thought Jews were welcomed back with open-arms after liberation. My family managed to leave right before the outbreak of the war and I know what happened to the few remaining who tried to go back to Poland. But somehow I believed the tropes about the ecstatic survivors and the joyful reunions. When I think about it this it really does not make sense. First, how could the genocide and degradation of a people lead to anything b [...]

    7. Dan Stone addresses the oft-neglected aspect of postwar Europe - what happened to the millions of Displaced Persons after the Third Reich collapsed. It is filled with testimonies of Holocaust survivors as well as military personnel often present at the sites of the concentration camps. These accounts are often a tough read, even though we are desensitized by the photos and newsreel, the visceral description of the mountains of dead is harrowing.

    8. Campo di Bergen-Belsen dato alle fiamme, dopo la liberazione avvenuta il 15 aprile 1945 ad opera di inglesi e canadesi.Dì loro che anche se il tuo cuore si trasforma in pietra, il tuo cervello in un freddo calcolatore e i tuoi occhi in obiettivi di una macchina fotografica, tu non ritornerai mai da loro. Loro farebbero meglio a cercarti nelle foreste eterne, perchè tu sarai fuggito dal mondo abitato dagli uomini, a cercare conforto tra le fiere nei campi pur di non vivere tra demoni acculturat [...]
