Landscapes of the Metropolis of Death Read & download Ô 102 One side He has nevertheless remained haunted by specific memories and images thoughts he has been unable to shake off The extraordinary result of this is Landscapes of the Metropolis of Death a uniue and powerful experiment in how one man has tried to understand his past and our history. A tough one to review this It s uite an unusual kind of book not uite autobiography not straightforward history either but rather an Auschwitz survivor s reflections on his experience and the impact it s had on him especially on a subconscious level This is interspersed with photographs and other illustrations and the book also features three amazing poems written by a young female prisoner who remains unknown Prior to reading this I did not know that the camp authorities had kept 5000 prisoners alive under much better conditions than the rest for the purposes of deception The author s dream about Mengele struck me as profound although it s hard to put into words exactly why This is an interesting poetic haunting book

I must confess that I was expecting a much better book I don t mean to be disrespectful it is a powerful and moving story of hardships and survival but for a memoir I found it very confusing and unfocused There is no clear narrative as opposed to Elie Wiesel s grandpiece Night nor clear timetable It is in reality a mere collage of thoughts and flashback on the author s 1 and a half imprisonment in Auchwitz with little to no dramatization or careful narration If it wasn t for the brilliant editing work the book is full of awesome historical photographs and the chapters are beautifully rendered this book would be almost unreadable All and all a book that could be great but falls short due to its author s lack of ambition It gets 3 stars solely due to the subject matter
