Fragments: Transcribing the Holocaust

by Frances Rapport with Anka Bergman, Terry Farago and Edith Salter

As Arthur W. Frank writes in his Foreword: These stories remind us what humans can inflict on each other, utterly negating our common humanity. But we also hear the human capacity to survive, to mutually aid, to continue to love and affirm life. As the survivors pass away, the task of remembering, of passing on their individual stories, set against the backdrop of the unimaginable scale of the Holocaust, falls on all of us. This book performs that task. — Proceeds of sales go to registered charity no.1125649, Swansea Bay Asylum Seekers Support Group.

About Anka, Terry and Edith

Anka Bergman, Terry Farago and Edith Salter all survived Auschwitz. Their witness testimony was recorded in recent years in Cardiff (Wales) by Frances Rapport, who sensitively condensed their words so as to create powerful poetic transcriptions of their extraordinary life stories.

Edith Salter passed away in 2011; Anka Bergman (who, with her daughter Eva, was the subject of the 2011 BBC documentary, The Baby Born In A Concentration Camp) passed away in July 2013.

Frances Rapport is a Professor of Health Implementation Science at Macquarie University’s Centre for Healthcare Resilience and Implementation Science within the Australian Institute of Health Innovation.
