Romania SIG #Romania Re: Matatias Carp book #romania

One more comment about this book - the English translation, which is what is
available on the net, is also an abridged version of the original,
containing very few names. The original, in Romanian, has hundreds of names
and personal accounts, written when memories were still fresh, by the
survivors, right after the war. There is no index. Having looked at both, I
don't think the present translation does it justice, it's more of a
statistical and historical account. The only place I have found the original
on the east coast is at the Harvard University library, and it is available
from them, on microfilm, for inter-library loan (that's how I actually
looked at it, several years ago).
