  • Il farmacista del ghetto di Cracovia By Tadeusz Pankiewicz Irene Picchianti, Quando in un quartiere periferico di Cracovia viene creato d autorit il ghetto ebraico, il 3 marzo 1941, Tadeusz Pankiewicz ne diventa suo malgrado un abitante Pur senza essere ebreo, infatti, gestisce l unica farmacia del quartiere contro ogni previsione e contro ogni logica di sopravvivenza, decide di rimanere e di tenere aperta la sua bottega, resistendo ai diversi tQuando in un quartiere periferico di Cracovia viene creato d autorit il ghetto ebraico, il 3 marzo 1941, Tadeusz Pankiewicz ne diventa suo malgrado un abitante Pur senza essere ebreo, infatti, gestisce l unica farmacia del quartiere contro ogni previsione e contro ogni logica di sopravvivenza, decide di rimanere e di tenere aperta la sua bottega, resistendo ai diversi tentativi di sgombero, agli ordini perentori di chiusura e trasferimento Rimarr anche quando il ghetto verr diviso in due e in gran parte sfollato, quando diventer sempre pi difficile giustificare la necessit della sua presenza.Grazie a questa sua condizione anomala, coinvolto ed estraneo allo stesso tempo, Pankiewicz diventa una figura cardine del ghetto si fa testimone delle brutalit del nazismo, fedele cronista dei fatti e silenzioso soccorritore, cercando in tutti i modi di salvare la vita e, quando impossibile, almeno la memoria delle migliaia di ebrei del ghetto di Cracovia.Mescolando il rigore della ricostruzione e la delicatezza del ricordo, Tadeusz Pankiewicz ci restituisce la sua versione di questa grande tragedia, raccogliendo le storie di chi ha subito impotente la soluzione finale e le storie di chi ha invece provato a reagire i disperati tentativi di resistenza armata, la ricerca del cianuro di potassio come extrema ratio in caso di cattura, le fughe attraverso le fogne cittadine Il farmacista del ghetto di Cracovia racconta tutta l assurdit di un momento storico in cui il capriccio del caso decise il destino di molti, ma anche l incredibile resilienza degli esseri umani di fronte all orrore Come dice un cliente a Pankiewicz Dottore, mi dica come mai ci sono cos pochi pazzi in giro dopo tutto quello che la gente ha dovuto sopportare Possono le cellule grigie del nostro cervello reggere cos tanto dolore.

    1. Un amico sopravvissuto alla guerra ed tornato a trovarmi Non mi sento felice nella piena accezione del termine , mi ha detto con voce spenta E dire che ci sono stata, a Cracovia, e alla farmacia di Pankiewicz ci sar anche passata davanti, eppure i ricordi sono vaghissimi Scartabellando su internet, trovo conferma di quello che era il mio unico ricordo certo in quelle vie nulla rimasto uguale a come fu un tempo, nemmeno le vie hanno pi lo stesso nome, almeno non tutte Ti portano in una piazza e t [...]

    2. La recensione presente anche sul blog thebooksblendertervista Ho ricevuto dalla casa editrice una copia del libro in cambio di un onesta recensione Le parole, le considerazioni, le analisi, ma soprattutto l eroica condotta di questo mite farmacista e delle sue assistenti, tra i pochi a considerare quel maledetto luogo pur sempre una patria comune , ci insegnano che la vita di ogni persona, pur in una situazione devastata dalla morte di massa, pu ancora essere ritenuta il pi grande dono che ci st [...]

    3. Una testimonianza diretta e cruda del farmacista Tadeusz Pankiewicz di ci che avvenne a Cracovia nel ghetto durante la seconda guerra mondiale La farmacia divenne un mezzo per salvare vite Non solo fu anche testimone di tutte le atrocit che accaddero durante quegli anni.

    4. First, I always have trouble rating Holocaust memoirs who am I to judge such a thing This is a difficult book, and definitely NOT a memoir for beginners I m very glad to have read it, very glad to have it in my collection, and very glad that the Holocaust Museum is carrying this title, which was out of print.The difficulty here is that there is very little in the way of narrative structure it is mainly Mgr Pankiewicz s thought and impressions of what he saw while his pharmacy was in the Cracow g [...]

    5. All Holocaust memoirs are upsetting, but this is upsetting than most I think it s because most memoirs deal mainly with the suffering of one individual along with their families and acquaintances This one deals with the suffering of something like 15,000 people, as reported by the Polish pharmacist who lived in the Krakow Ghetto and witnessed much of it After the war, Tadeusz Pankiewicz testified against quite a few Nazis, and this book reads a bit like a testimony people, places, dates, who di [...]

    6. Wonderful, touching story of the gentile pharmacist who was allowed to continue working in the Jewish Ghetto during the German occupation I m teaching the History of Pharmacy this fall, and it is unknown heroes like Tadeusz Pankiewicz that need to be brought to the attention of the world As a person of Polish heritage and as a fellow pharmacist his quiet heroism and his willing testamony to what he saw has made him a personal hero to me and he has been numbered amongst the Righteous Among Nation [...]

    7. 3.5 starsWhen the Krakow Ghetto was created shortly after the beginning of the second World War, the borders were placed right around Pankiewicz s pharmacy As a Pole, he could have easily left and found a safer place to wait out the war, but he didn t He chose to stay and to not just witness but to help, in so many ways, his less fortunate Jewish neighbors and friends This book is his remembrances about the time period It is definitely good if you already have some knowledge about this period of [...]

    8. Chiaramente non si potrebbe nemmeno giudicare una testimonianza del genere, preziosa come poche Le cinque stelle sono soprattutto relative alla memoria di ferro di Pankiewicz, che riuscito a tramandarci la maggior parte dei nomi delle persone che si sono distinte per atti eroici o che hanno perso la vita tragicamente Il suo intento era di tramandare la memoria di queste persone, ognuna meritevole di essere ricordata, ed estremamente lodevole la minuzia di dettagli, nomi, date e luoghi che ci ha [...]

    9. Pankiewicz was in a unique situation as his pharmacy was located in the new ghetto set up for the relocation of Jewish families in Krakow Realizing unless he fought to the keep the pharmacy he would lose it forever, Pankiewicz became a witness to the tragedies that unfolded there until the liquidation of the area The book is a series of anecdotal stories that tell of heroism and hope as well as cruelty and futility Pankiewicz came in contact with a host of various peoples and was able to find ou [...]

    10. We bought this book in Kazimierz the original Jewish district of Krakow, the assistant confirmed it was the biggest selling English language book they stocked We wandered around the former Ghetto, there are clues as to its existence remaining one of which is the Pod Orlem pharmacy I tried to pronounce every name in this memoir of the Jews and Poles who acted with such nobility, it s the least I could do You really should read this book as part of the canon of WWII literature The author manages t [...]

    11. This book was a little confusing to me Perhaps it was due to the translation There were lots of names listed little specifically said regarding what the pharmacist actually did I m glad I read it as I do wish to visit Pod Orlem the pharmacy one day as it has been turned into a museum.

    12. Chilling firsthand accounts of the Jewish ghetto in Krakow, Poland, the major deportations of 1942 43 and liquidation A vital primary source for researchers, family members, and any of us intrigued by acts of compassion and resilience during the Nazi savagery and overwhelming Polish acquiescence.

    13. It is extremely hard to rate such a book it almost feels insensitive and wrong I bought this book in Kracow whilst visiting the pharmacy and square Having been there it was all the vivid as I read the book It provides an authentic first hand view of the horrific scenes as they unfolded in the ghetto The narrative is driven by the progression of time but I would imagine without some contextual knowledge, it might be difficult to follow and could certainly be quite disturbing, so I am glad it is [...]

    14. Authentic and intimate account of life in the Krakow ghetto it doesn t attempt to provide broader historical context but instead focuses on the experiences and fate of the people known to the author through his work in the pharmacy The descriptions of events and of peoples character are fascinating, if often disturbing and heartbreaking And despite the suffering described, some of the anecdotes are uplifting and inspiring also those of small acts of compassion and of doing what one can to resist [...]

    15. I visited the Square of Heroes in the Jewish ghetto of Cracow this summer The pharmacy is directly across the street After reading this book the square is aptly named What the Jewish people endured, and how they did so with dignity is astounding This book is a tribute to the many who sacrificed, helped the Jews and suffered unimaginably during the Nazi occupation of Poland I highly recommend this book to remember these heroes May we never forget.

    16. It s best to read this book with existing knowledge of the Holocaust, ghettos, and deportations This is the pharmacist s view of what he witnessed and with whom he was acquainted He does not provide much background knowledge about the situation and outcome, but rather it is an informative read about his corner of the world during this tragedy.

    17. I thought this was a good book, but difficult to follow at times It seemed to jump around a lot Bit overall a wonderful book and a must read.

    18. Horrifying but compelling Having studied the subject for years am still shocked at the inhumanity Unforgettable.
