STAR ETERNAL by Ka-tzetnik 135633


Email this review


To the Ka-Tzet (concentration camp inmates) ""now voiceless and consumed,"" the survivor's vow was made -- ""not to cease to tell of you"" -- and this very brief testament by the author of House of Dolls is driven by anguish. The survivor remembers the town square in Poland -- the child on the bike, busy voices, the clock and blind justice. Then the Guernican scenes of ultimate horror and grief, splinters of awareness in explicit photographic detail, and back in the square, the silences. In a series of chapters, the painful cauterization of a running wound, but unlike Elie Wiesel's work, this does not really confront that other world to which the survivor returned.
