Rare publication in German ‘Zebra – Ein Tatsachenbericht aus dem Konzentrationslager Flossenburg’ (‘Zebra – A factual report from the Flossenburg concentration camp’) written by Hugo Walleitner, Bad Ischl, [1946-47?], self-published, 191 pages, 5.5 x 8.25 inches. Original gray half cloth over illustrated tan boards with black lettering on cover and spine. With 34 drawings by the author. Hugo Walleitner (1909 – 1982) was an Austrian prisoner and survivor of the KL Flossenburg concentration camp, located halfway between Nuremberg and Prague. Walleitner was a prisoner here for over three years, his factual report ignores any mention that he may have been incarcerated for being homosexual. One of the first testimonial books published after the Holocaust. Text in German, overall in a very good condition.
