about this item

Francesc and Emili, two ex republican soldiers in the Spanish Civil War who are now in the French army, get captured by ****** troops. They, along with other Spanish former fighters, are deported to Mauthausen concentration camp, where their nightmare begins—the terrible experience that turns them into witnesses and victims of the so-called International of Pain. The story focuses on Emili, who manages to survive by making ****** drawings for the SS. Through him we see the inner workings of the camp: the corrupt network of kapos, the different classes of prisoners, the horrific extermination system, the malnutrition—the inhumanity of one of the most tragic chapters of our history. Author Amat-Piniella wrote this novel, published for the first time in 1963, based on his experiences as a prisoner for nearly five years in different ****** concentration camps. His objective was to carry on the memory of the thousands of Spaniards interned in camps.
