The controversial fictionalised account – apparently based upon an authentic diary – of a fourteen year old Polish Jew and her enforced prostitution in a Nazi labour camp. The book’s detailed description of the infamous Nazi Joy Division which allegedly kept Jewish women as sex slaves in concentration camps has subsequently been denounced by the Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Authority as ‘pornographic fiction.’ Paperback. pp223.
Following the book’s first publication in 1955 it transpired that Ka-tzetnik 135633 was the pseudonym of Yehiel De-Nur, an Auschwitz survivor, who wrote a series of fictionalized books of his experiences. His true identity became known while giving testimony at the Eichmann trial.
Among his other similar accounts of the Nazi concentration camps are:
Atrocity at Auschwitz, which is apparently the closest personal account of his experiences.
Moni – The story of Ka-tzetnik 135633’s brother at Auschwitz.
Sunrise Over Hell, originally published in 1946 as Salamandra.

The British rock band Joy Division supposedly took the inspiration for their name from the book, and references it in the song No Love Lost, one of the four tracks on their debut EP (on vinyl!), An Ideal for Living.
