hi. I'm writing a war story and I need a description of a near-death experience in a gas chamber. Can anyone help me out? The more detailed the better. Thanks! ~★Alice

I'm not sure that any such account exists, I've certainly never heard of one. But many personal stories are available from people who survived the death camps. You can find some of them at this link.

The most powerful thing I've ever read about the Nazi camps was a poem written by Yevgeny Yevtushenko. He gets down to the very soul of the camps and manages to capture the despair of the victims. It's very moving. It's called The Light Controller and, although it's not published anywhere on the Internet, I once copied it for a friend on Ask. You can check it out on my Dropbox page: HERE.

I wish you well with the story. I'd love to read it if you manage to get it finished.

Thanks, Didge.

II sure it deserves deserves my undivided attention and time for reflection. (4 pages)

So I'll read it a little bit later.

You'll get much more impact if you go through it in one sitting, Tom. They're tiny lines and you'll read it in 10 minutes.

Yes, I will. It downloaded on four pages and the type did seem small.
