The Long Voyage

by Jorge Semprun Richard Seaver

The Long Voyage is Jorge Semprun's devastatingly honest and heart-breaking account of a young Spaniard captured fighting with the French Resistance, and the days and nights he spends in the company of 119 other men in a cattle truck that rolls slowly but inexorably towards Buchenwald. During the seemingly endless journey, he has conversations that range from his childhood to speculations about the death camps. When, at last the fantastic, Wagnerian gates to Buchenwald come into sight, the young Spaniard is left alone to face the camp. First published in 1963 in French, The Long Voyage won the prestigious Formentor Prize and is considered one of the classics of Holocaust literature.
