In Conversation with the author of "From Day to Day" Tim Boyce

From Day to Day is a World War II concentration camp diary—one of only a handful ever translated into English—secretly written by Odd Nansen, a Norwegian political prisoner. Arrested in January 1942, Nansen, son of polar explorer and humanitarian Fridtjof Nansen (Nobel Peace Prize 1922) was held captive for the duration of the war in various Nazi camps in Norway and Germany. The book had been out of print for nearly 60 years when Timothy Boyce stumbled across it. Fascinated by the heroic story and saddened that such a magnificent book was so scarce and nearly forgotten, Boyce set out to get the book back in print. It now features a new introduction and extensive annotations by Boyce and a preface by Thomas Buergenthal, whose life (as a ten year-old) Nansen saved while in Sachsenhausen, later recounted in his own memoir A Lucky Child: A Memoir of Surviving Auschwitz as a Young Boy. Hear more about this incredibly moving story as Boyce shares the story of Odd Nansen with the audience. From Day to Day may be purchased at www.timboyce.com for $39.99. All royalties from the sale of this book are given to the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C., and the Center for the Study of the Holocaust in Oslo, Norway.
