    Unfinished Symphony is an unusual memoir by Bernard Hellreich Ingram It is a story from the Holocaust by a Jew but he hid in the open as an Aryan doctor He was, indeed, a doctor but epidemiology was his field However, he served as a medical doctor during the Holocaust He does not give us a look at his childhood but begins when he is an adult Ironically, he never intended to write a memoir and was even discouraged from doing it by his wife When he decided to write, he wrote in late hours Unfinished Symphony is an unusual memoir by Bernard Hellreich Ingram It is a story from the Holocaust by a Jew but he hid in the open as an Aryan doctor He was, indeed, a doctor but epidemiology was his field However, he served as a medical doctor during the Holocaust He does not give us a look at his childhood but begins when he is an adult Ironically, he never intended to write a memoir and was even discouraged from doing it by his wife When he decided to write, he wrote in late hours His daughter, Vivienne, encouraged him to write as did his son, Chris He writes in first person but the tone is much different from other memoirs of this era It is almost a joyful, bouncy tone He went through his life just bouncing along going wherever life led him He relied on a great deal of luck, pure and simple luck He lived in Tarnopol as did his Father and his step mother, his sister and brother, and her two children His older brother also lived there with his wife and child Bernhard had gone to school in Italy to get his medical degree He is Jewish which made it impossible to go to school in Poland He met his wife, Irena Szumsha Kichka who was a Christian but that didn t bother her She wasforceful than he was It is due to her courage and convictions that he managed to survive and escape the ghetto in Tarnopol and live in the open as a Christian With the help of Marian Golebiowaki, Deputy Director of the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, they moved to Czermna to live A man who was in love with Kichka helped by giving them his name, Zbyske Jakobiszyn, for false papers and his friendship Life in Czermna was definitely eventful as it went from German to Russian to German hands His friendship with Mrs Lobaczerwska, the owner of the Estate, allowed him to practice medicine much easier Her family helped when the rumors that he was Jewish started their rounds After the war, they finally went to Australia where he had to go back to do medical school over again to gain his degree again It was here that he finally wrote his memoir As I said, the tone of the book and the way he puts it together is different from other memoirs He admits that his short stay at Hluboczek Concentration camp was nothing like the stays of others in other camps He admits that as difficult as it was for him at times, the Jews in the ghettos and camps had it much harder than he did He lived in Italy under facism, in Poland under Communism and Nazism, and finally free in Australia under democracy He feels extremely lucky to live in Australia with Kichka and knows it was luck that kept him alive during the Holocaust This is a different part of the Holocaust studies but is very valuable in the study of the Holocaust

    This is a story of a Jew who survived the Holocaust He was indeed fortunate as he himself admits He came close to be identified on numerous occasions but providence was on his side The description of pre war Poland under Russian occupation and thereafter under German occupation is vivid and brings out the horrors OF anti Semitism Voltaire, when asked of the Jews , what is their crime replied, Only that they were born The author quotes a victim of Auschwitz, Primo Levi to describe w This is a story of a Jew who survived the Holocaust He was indeed fortunate as he himself admits He came close to be identified on numerous occasions but providence was on his side The description of pre war Poland under Russian occupation and thereafter under German occupation is vivid and brings out the horrors OF anti Semitism Voltaire, when asked of the Jews , what is their crime replied, Only that they were born The author quotes a victim of Auschwitz, Primo Levi to describe what really transpired Never have so many lives been extinguished with so lucid combination of technological ingenuity, fanaticism and cruelty There couldn t be a better description It is natural for a person who has been through such travails to become philosophical The author comes up with seminal statements like A friend has been described as one who walks in when others walk out and It is so easy and satisfying to be generous, noble and helpful when one s generosity does not impinge upon one s own well being He goes on to quote Bertrand Russell to convey his own thoughts about religion The harm inflicted on humanity by religious intolerance and hunger for power is out of proportion to the blessings offered How true

    The author, a doctor who had qualified from Czechoslovakia and Italy before the war began, and worked as a doctor until the second German occupation of his region Tarnopol after Germany went to war against the until then occupying Soviets, survived and lived through holocaust, and wasfortunate than most in thst respect, but saw much that makes a read quite engrossing and worth To quote a summing up of his travails by the author, who lived through holocaust by hiding out with a change The author, a doctor who had qualified from Czechoslovakia and Italy before the war began, and worked as a doctor until the second German occupation of his region Tarnopol after Germany went to war against the until then occupying Soviets, survived and lived through holocaust, and wasfortunate than most in thst respect, but saw much that makes a read quite engrossing and worth To quote a summing up of his travails by the author, who lived through holocaust by hiding out with a change of identity In retrospect, considering the available literature on the monstrous atrocities of the holocaust, my story is one of survival in an idyllic oasis in the midst of a man made inferno To ask for sympathy, or to indulge in self pity would be an insult to the victims of the concentration camps I was, and have been since, immensely lucky, thanks to Providence and to my saviour Kichka, who organised this comparatively melodramatic scenario of comfort, well being and relative security At another point, he describes a conversation with a German who discussed with him why Poles were not as friendly with occupying forces as they coukd be, and whike the author sidentity as a Jew was undisclosed, still, the conversation had to be cautious, yet some things were said that were true enough Se non e vero e ben trovato It may not be true but it sounds good At another point the author describes the jokes that went around, describing the power of humour when a totalitarian regime allows no freedom here is a good one he quotes A German Jew escapes from Germany and manages to get to America where he visits his friend Mr Rosenblum in his elegant office Behind the desk is a huge picture of Hitler What is that for asked the refugee Just in case I get homesick was the answer And here is an accurate pointing out a wider picture by the author Hitlerism was born when culture, literature and the arts in Germany were at their peak Nevertheless, growing unemployment, a progressively deteriorating economy and political chaos, contributed to the creation of a better , stable Germany, under Hitler s promising National Socialism This leads me to believe that in other parts of the world, bad conditions in reactionary, feudal systems when overthrown are usually replaced by modern, pseudo civilised, pseudo progressive systems which impose harsh, inhuman, repressive sanctions and regulations Anarchist and communist inmates of Tsarist gaols, or those in Siberia, were allowed scientific books, had access to good literature which was not anti Tsarist and enjoyed relative freedom of movement In post revolution years life in Siberian gaols and concentration camps was unbearably barbaric, involving total deprivation of contact with any product of modern culture I wonder whether the genocide of the Khmer Rouge in Kampuchea and the attempted destruction of the intellectual, civilised section of their community were intended to take that nation back to the good old days of a primitive and happy past And the post war parts he writes about are just as worth as those during the holocaust years, bringing home the facts about prejudices and unfair practices of other regimes and countries He managed to leave when Poland under a communist regime was getting difficult to say the least, but Australia where he went with his wife was far from easy, and not just because of a difference of language and culture rather, because of the unfair practices of Australia in particular and British in general that discriminated then as they continue to do pretty much niw, too, against things not quite British, or Australian in case of Australia although one can bet safely thst Australian prejudices against non Australians do not include British This unfairness when applied in professional capacity and qualifications is just as devastating to the recipients as those during Nazi regimes against Jews, although Australia covers it by applying the label of high standards to justify such prejudices in practice

    Not quite the nail biting undercover promisedCertainly the author s story is interesting Particularly the part where he lived under Soviet rule before the Germans took over And yes, the time he spent masquerading as a Christian doctor, apparently with mixed results, is interesting, however he never makes it seem truly risky In fact if anything it seems rather mundane I didn t get that sense that he was in any real danger except in maybe two or three instances I don t know if it s because of Not quite the nail biting undercover promisedCertainly the author s story is interesting Particularly the part where he lived under Soviet rule before the Germans took over And yes, the time he spent masquerading as a Christian doctor, apparently with mixed results, is interesting, however he never makes it seem truly risky In fact if anything it seems rather mundane I didn t get that sense that he was in any real danger except in maybe two or three instances I don t know if it s because of his writing style or not But if you re expecting a tale of deprivation and constant fear in the vein of Anne Frank or other stories about Jewish people who literally were in hiding, this is not the book for you But it was worth it to me for the Russian part alone Also at the end when he visits Israel he makes some very interesting comments that lead to inspiring conversation at my home Overall though it was not what I thought the book would be

    Simply amazing This book gave a much different view of the Jews during WWII This story is based on a survivor who only set foot in a concentration camp as a doctor It gives great credit to those who heroically aided the doctor thereby permitting him to live on the outside His struggles however remained much the same with periods of hiding, hunger, cold, homelessness, and other issues Those in the camps were already caught in the Reich web, while he spent every second looking over his should Simply amazing This book gave a much different view of the Jews during WWII This story is based on a survivor who only set foot in a concentration camp as a doctor It gives great credit to those who heroically aided the doctor thereby permitting him to live on the outside His struggles however remained much the same with periods of hiding, hunger, cold, homelessness, and other issues Those in the camps were already caught in the Reich web, while he spent every second looking over his shoulder and risking trust in those he had to deal with to survive

    Another bittersweet triumph.An interesting, touching personal tale of survival during this dark period, although similar to other stories I have read previously Like the stories read before, the survival of the book s author, although a personal triumph, led him to the knowledge that his family had nearly all perished Such a bittersweet triumph I found the daughter Vivienne s journey back to her parents home to be especially touching.
