W. Bereś: “This is a book which does not entirely meet the formal requirements of this contest, but it is so fine and went so unnoticed, that I had to notice it. It is Uwe von Seltmann’s “Gabi and Uwe: My Grandfather Died In Auschwitz, And Mine Was An Esesman.” The book is written by a German man, yet his Polish wife plays an important role in this project that is closely tied with Poland. What’s more, this book fits the traditional non-fiction model while retaining a strong literary tone.”
“Uwe von Seltmann, Enkel eines SS-Mannes, beschreibt in seinem Buch “Todleben” die Liebe zu einer Polin, deren Großvater in Auschwitz ermordet wurde”
