PDF EBook by Ka-tzetnik 135633 (Yehiel De-Nur/Dinur)

EBook Description

Yehiel Feiner was born in Poland in 1917. Moni PDF EBookDuring the German occupation of Poland he was first in a ghetto and then in Auschwitz, where, according to his own account, he escaped from a selection despite the fact that he had already been reduced to the level of a Mussulman (Muselmann), that is, a living skeleton, in the parlance of the inmates. He once more escaped from a death march only moments before the prisoners were executed by their SS guards (who then proceeded to put on the prison uniforms of the dead so as to avoid punishment by the Red Army). Feiner came to Palestine as part of the Brihah operation organized by the Jewish Brigade and the Haganah and changed his name to Dinur, or "of fire" in Aramaic (the name may also be associated with the Hebrew word "din," which can mean trial, justice, and punishment, and especially with the Dinur river mentioned in the Book of Daniel and interpreted by the Kabbalah as "a river of fire in the upper reaches of hell that descends upon the evil after their death to purify them"). For the next four decades he devoted himself to writing on his own experience in the camps, on the fate of his parents, siblings, and wife, who all died in the Holocaust, and on his post- PDFAuschwitz life in Israel and his struggle to build a new identity while remaining totally obsessed with the genocide he had survived.

Until the early 1960s Dinur retained his anonymity. His books were all published under the pseudonym Ka-Tzetnik, which is derived from the German acronym for concentration camp (KZ for Konzentrationslager) and was a commonly used term among the inmates (but may also be associated with Kafka's character K.). His identity was revealed during the Eichmann trial, where his testimony, which was cut short when he collapsed in the courtroom and was ushered to a hospital, made public his assertion that Auschwitz was "another planet," that is, a universe in which the conventional rules and customs of human civilization did not apply.

Piepel, is the story of Harry's young brother Moni, who is made into the servant and sexual slave of various barracks commanders in Auschwitz until he too is finally killed (such child prostitutes were called Piepel in the jargon of the camps, a term apparently derived from the German provincial word for lad and penis).
