NOTES
1.
Danuta Czech, Auschwitz Chronicle 1939-1945, trans. Barbara Harshav, Martha Humphreys , and Stephen Shearier ( New York: Holt, 1990), 652.
3.
Giuliana Tedeschi, There Is a Place on Earth: A Woman in Birkenau, trans. Tim Parks ( New York: Pantheon, 1992), 9-10.
9.
See Peter Hellman, The Auschwitz Album: A Book Based Upon an Album Discovered by a Concentration Camp Survivor, Lili Meier ( New York: Random House, 1981), 38. Although The Auschwitz Album identifies her only as S. Szmaglewska, it is likely that this woman is the Polish author of early memoirs about Birkenau, which, unfortunately, have long been out of print. See Seweryna Szmaglewska, Smoke Over Birkenau, trans. Jadwiga Rynas ( New York: Holt, 1947) and United in Wrath ( Warsaw: "Polonia" Foreign Languages Publishing House, 1955). Szmaglewska's testimony at the Nuremberg Trials can be found in Trial of the Major War Criminals before the International Military Tribunal ( Nuremberg: 1947), 8:317-23. In this testimony, Szmaglewska, who says she was in Birkenau from October 7, 1942, until January 1945, is identified as Severina Shmaglevskaya. For another reference to the baby strollers in Auschwitz, see Rudolf Vrba and Alan Bestic, I Cannot Forgive ( New York: Grove Press, 1964). With help from the camp resistance, Vrba, a Slovakian Jew, escaped from Auschwitz in the spring of 1944 and reported what was happening there. Before his escape, he worked in "Canada," the storehouse area in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Tedeschi, There Is a Place on Earth, 1.
12.
In addition to Giuliana Tedeschi's superb book, one also thinks of Judith Magyar Isaacson's Seed of Sarah: Memoirs of a Survivor ( Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1990) and Liana Millu Smoke Over Birkenau, trans. Lynne Sharon Schwartz ( Philadelphia: The Jewish Publication Society, 1991). It is interesting that Millu's book borrows the title of one of the earliest Holocaust memoirs to be published by a woman. See n. 9 above for more detail.

Tedeschi, There Is a Place on Earth, 138.
