Item description for Diary of Bergen-Belsen by Amira Hass Hanna Lvy-Hass...
Hanna Levy-Hass, a Yugoslavian Jew, emerged a defiant survivor of the Holocaust. Her observations, recorded in her own incomparable voice, shed new light on the lived experience of Nazi internment. Levy-Hass stands alone as the only resistance fighter to report on her own experience inside the camps, and she does so with unflinching clarity in dealing with the political and social divisions inside Bergen-Belsen.
Amira Hass, an indispensable voice in her own right as the only Israeli journalist living and writing from with Occupied Territories, offers a substantial introduction to her mother's work that addresses the meaning of the Holocaust for Israelis and Palestinians today.
Born in Sarajevo in 1913, Hanna Levy-Hass became involved in the clandestine Communist movement while studying in Belgrade in the 1930s. There, she was instilled with a passion for freedom and equality, which would guide her work and her perspective throughout the rest of her life. For her, the misuse of the memory of the Holocaust as a legitimization of the Israeli occupation of Palestine did not dissuade her from a determination to fight for a better world based on justice and liberty.
