        THE AUSCHWITZ ALBUM: LILLY JACOB'S ALBUM [RARE FIRST PRINTING]

      New York, Beate Klarsfeld Foundation, 1980. 1st edition, first printing. Original Paper wrappers, Oblong 4to, [128] pages, mostly illustrations. 23 x 31 cm. Text in English. The rare first edition of the what came to be one of the most important photographic records of the Holocaust. It was not offered for sale, but was published by the Klarsfeld foundation in a limited run of 1000 copies and distributed to a select list of libraries and institutions. ?The Auschwitz Album is a unique photographic record of the Holocaust of the Second World War. A collection of photographs taken inside a Nazi German death camp, it is the only surviving pictorial evidence (with the exception of four surreptitious photographs taken by Sonderkommandos) of the extermination process from inside the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi concentration camp?. The album has 56 pages and 193 photographs. ?The images follow the processing of newly arrived Hungarian Jews from Carpatho-Ruthenia in the early summer of 1944. They document the disembarkation of the Jewish prisoners from the train boxcars, followed by the selection process, performed by doctors of the SS and wardens of the camp, which separated those who were considered fit for work from those who were to be sent to the gas chambers. The photographer followed groups of those selected for work, and those selected for death to a birch grove just outside the crematoria where they were made to wait before being killed. The photographer also documented the workings of an area called Canada, where the looted belongings of the prisoners were sorted before transport to Germany. The album's survival is remarkable, given the strenuous efforts made by the Nazis to keep the ?Final Solution? a secret. Also remarkable is the story of its discovery. Lili Jacob (later Lili Jacob-Zelmanovic Meier) was selected for work at Auschwitz-Birkenau while the other members of her family were sent to the gas chambers. The Auschwitz camp was evacuated by the Nazis as the Soviet army approached. Jacob passed through various camps, finally arriving at the Dora concentration camp, where she was eventually liberated. Recovering from illness in a vacated barracks of the SS, Jacob found the album in a cupboard beside her bed. Inside, she found pictures of herself, her relatives, and others from her community. The coincidence was astounding, given that the Nordhausen-Dora camp was over 640 km (400 mi) away, and that over 1, 100, 000 people were killed at Auschwitz?. Nazi-hunter Serge Klarsfeld visited Lili in 1980 and convinced her to donate the album to Yad Vashem. The album's contents were first published that year in the book The Auschwitz Album, edited by Klarsfeld? (Wikipedia, 2014) . Includes laid in copies of articles and promotional items from 1980 about the book. SUBJECT(S) Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) -- Pictorial works. Ex-library with usual markings. Light wear, Very Good Condition. Important, Rare to come up in the trade. (holo2-122-38) xx

        Caphtor / Keftiu. A new investigation.

      Leiden, E.J.Brill, 1980. 227 S. Mit 10 Textfiguren und 2 Karten (Eastern Mediterranean & Cyprus). 25,5 x 17,5 cm. Orig.-Pappband. Acta Theologica Danica, Vol.XIV // Introduction: \"In the Old Testament it is said of Israel\'s archenemies, the Philistines, that they came from Caphtor: \'Did I not bring Israel out of the land of Egypt? And the Philistines from Caphtor...?\'. The Israelites knew that the Philistines were immigrants in the land of Canaan like themselves, and they knew their land of origin. This immigration took place in the early part of the 12th cent.B.C., and already in Old Testament days the identity and geographical position of Caphtor were forgotten. Ezekiel XXV, 15-17 implies that the Philistines came from Crete, but this passage can be proved to be a grabled version of Jeremiah XLVII,4, later interpolated in the text of Ezekiel. It only shows that at the time of this interpolation, the 6th cent.B.C. or later, all actual knowledge of Caphtor had been lost. In modern scholarship the problem acquired a renewed importance when Champollion found the Philistines mentioned in Egyptian inscriptions from the XXth dynasty. At the same time he found paintings in Egyptian tombs, showing foreigners from Keftiu or Kefto among other nationalities. This place was promptly maintained to be the same as Caphtor, later found in the form Kaptara in Semitic inscriptions. Since then various proposals for the identification of Caphtor/Kaptara/Keftiu have been put forward (e.G. Crete, Cyprus, Cilicia, Northern Syria), but [..]. Finally a word about the chronological framework of the present study. As already mentioned the oldest text possibly dates from ca.2300 B.C. and the youngest from ca.300 A.D. or somewhat later [..]\" /// Rücken leicht verblasst.
