Hell on earth

Avigdor Hameiri, Peter C Appelbaum (Translator), Avner Holtzman

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


"Hell on Earth is the second book written by Avigdor Hameiri (born Feuerstein; 1890-1970) about his experiences as a Russian prisoner of war during the second half of World War I. Translator Peter C. Appelbaum first became interested in Hameiri's story after learning that one quarter of the Austro-Hungarian army was captured and imprisoned, and that the horrific events that took place at this time throughout Russia and central Asia are rarely discussed in scholarly texts. Available for the first time to an English-speaking audience, this reality-driven novel is comparable to classics like All Quiet on the Western Front and The Gulag Archipelago."--
