Sample text

Lined up in fives, the men march in the hazy heat of that August 4th morning along a road which leads out of a small town, past stuccoed rowhouses and an old Jewish cemetery in which—amazingly—the stones still stand, and then curves for six kilometers through fields and meadows, up a steep hill through the village and into the camp. The streets of the village of Flossenbürg stand empty, as they always do when transports arrive because the SS does not allow the townspeople out at those times.
