The author of the reminiscences comes from Eastern Galicia. As a youth, he was incarcerated in a German labour camp near his native village. He describes the life in the camps, the work in quarries and building roads, the starving of the inmates and the ruthlessness of the guards. The author managed to escape, using forged documents, and started working in a Ukrainian farm. Its owner, a Ukrainian nationalist, did not realize that he had a Jew living in his home. After the liberation the author moved to Poland. He lives in Israel now.
