Several years after the discovery of the alleged remains of Dr Josef Mengele in a Brazilian cemetery, the long-lost victims of his notorious medical experiments continue to grapple with his tortuous legacy.For the most part, Mengele's subjects were twins who, until now, have kept silent, rarely discussing their death camp ordeals, not even with their families and loved ones. In this remarkable narrative, the life of Auschwitz's'Angel of Death' is told in counterpoint to the lives of the surviving twins, who are themselves now inching into middle or old age.In stories that abound with ambiguity, anger, and redemptive hope, we encounter them first as children beginning their descent into Auschwitz by witnessing their entire families being led away to be killed.Later, we see the twins grateful for the soup and bread Mengele procured for them and reassured by his moments of seemingly genuine affection, yet terrified always by what he forced them to endure. But the heart of this compelling book centres on the years following the Liberation.After the war had destroyed their lives we follow the survivors as they struggle to rebuild their future as best they can.Some are tormented by what twin siblings who didn't survive the experiments experienced;others bear a terrible residual guilt for having been born a twin, which conferred upon them a privileged status that assured their survival.And all of them are condemned to live with a terrible double-edged sword:the hell they suffered because of Mengele, and the life they owe him as 'his' children. 'Children of the Flames' climaxes with a historic reunion of the surviving twins of Auschwitz on the fortieth anniversary of their liberation.Here is an entirely new story about the Holocaust and its aftermath - and of the men and women who have achieved a fragile and hard-won triumph over the past.It is a work of unsurpassed poignancy and enduring historical interest that expresses the continuing paradox surrounding the infamous Angel of Death.
