Buchenwald. Book: "The Seventh Well"

Fred Wander was kept in various concentration and labor camps in France and Germany during the World War II era, see his book, "The Seventh Well," reviewed at the New York Times, ://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/20/books/review/Hoffman-t.html/

The review is far better than any summary we could provide, so we refer you directly to it. And the book. The French work camps - a different angle to the German. The book appeared in East Germany in 1970, and only now is in English translation, by Michael Hofman.

Mr. Wander was in Buchenwald at the time of the Allied liberation, in 1945.
