I read this book a long time ago, here is a brief description of one of the stories in the book (from the back cover)
As a young boy, Binjamin Wilkomirski witnessed horror and human cruelty at its most extreme. Or not. He survivied the Nazi death camps of Poland: majdanek, Auschwitz-Birkenau. Or not. He saw his own father killed. Or not. He saw starving babies gnaw their fingers to the bone and worst time and place to be Jewish in history. Or not.
Since its publication in 1995, Wilfomirski's memoir of his childhood has been celebrated as one of the most powerful literary accounts of the Holocaust. But now the clouds of scepticism are gathering. Was the author anywhere near a death camp during the war? Was he a jew? Has he made it all up?
