Law, Cecil E.
Kamp Westerbork Transit Camp to Eternity : The Liberation Story
Canadian Peacekeeping Press, 2000. xxiv, 179 pages. Index, bibliography, references, glossary. Almost one hundred black and white reproductions of photos and documents. Two fold-out maps. "This study was exciting and personally rewarding to me. I treasure the many Dutch and Canadian friends who so patiently worked with me to reconstruct the events of half a century ago. I still think it highly important that the record of Canadian actions in helping to throw off the Nazi yoke in the Netherlands be accurately and fully told to Canadian and Dutch peoples before we have all passed on. But this publication is really devoted to the 363 killed and 1760 other casualties suffered by the South Saskatchewan Regiment in the Second World War, to the other units involved in the liberation of Kamp Westerbork, but most of all to the 876 prisoners, mainly Jewish, we helped to liberate in Kamp Westerbork, the 4000 or so who passed through this transit camp to hell, but lived, and to the more than 103,000 who did not." - Foreword. After serving in WWII Professor Law [1922-2011] moved on to a career at Queen's University where he established the Business School's microcomputer lab in the 1980s, where this bookseller had the opportunity to meet him. Clean and unmarked with light wear. A quality copy of this important and highly-detailed study.
