A Liter of Soup and Sixty Grams of Bread:
The Diary of Prisoner 109565
For a Greek Jew like Heinz Salvator Kounio, the ability to speak German saved his life, and the lives of his family. In this powerful memoir, Kounio meticulously describes his experience in Auschwitz and other camps. The book?s title refers to the daily rations for prisoners: there was never enough, and the soup was often made of potato peels, the bread from sawdust. The book, adapted and translated by Marcia Haddad Ikonomopoulos, is the second volume in the Sephardic and Greek Holocaust Library.
