Notable quotes about K. Tzetnik (pseudonym of Yehiel De-Nur; see this article or the other thread viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4509):
K. Tzetnik was the first to tell the Auschwitz story in Hebrew… This man who had been in Auschwitz and stayed alive to tell the Auschwitz story. He was the only one here, for at least 10 years.
He described only what he saw. So he’s being scolded: “You told the truth and now we’ll condemn you.”
He caused enormous harm because those were the first books about the Holocaust here and that became the trademark.
in the 90’s K. Tzetnik’s books were included in high school matriculation curricula. He became the school system’s main Holocaust author.
Auschwitz guide wrote:This is block no. 24. Young Jewish beauties were brought here. They were sterilized and brought to “the Pleasure Block”… She had to be on call 24 hours a day to satisfy the lust of truckloads of German soldiers arriving here. They would unload them here, at this building. For sexual pleasure. These girls were called “Battlefield Whores” [Feldhuren]…
Israeli school director wrote:K. Tzetnik’s book impressed me very much. My kids will study it later as well. It is included in the high school curricula.
