Oy Mame! Oy Mame! by Max & Chana Gutreiman Goldberg & Mauricio Vargas Ortega

Genre: Memoire, Jewish History, Holocaust

Oy Mame! Oy Mame! – I Looked into the Eyes of Evil – is the story of Holocaust survivor Abraham Gutreiman and is based on his oral recollections captured during a series of video interviews when he was 90 years old. It includes many stories that he told multiple times over the years to everyone he came across. This time, knowing his end was near, he intended they should be recorded for future generations. The final chapters of this book were recorded later and continue his experiences until his departure from this world aged 95.

Forced onto a train headed to the Treblinka Death Camp with many members of his family, Abraham and his elder brother were able to escape when the iron bars in the small window were cut open. Surviving his fall from the speeding train, Abraham reunited with his brother days later and spent the next two years in hiding from the Nazis.

Oy Mame! Oy Mame! explores Abraham’s battles with poverty, evil, adversity, and his relationship with God.
