This is the story of Boris Pahor, at 106 the oldest known survivor of the Nazi concentration camps. A Slovenian from Trieste, Pahor wrote his novel Necropolis about his time in Natzweiler camp for political prisoners, little known but deadly: almost half of the 57,000 prisoners interned there died. Although it was the first camp to be liberated by the Western allies, seventy-five years ago, it was empty: Pahor and the prisoners had been moved on to Dachau, Dora and the death camp of Bergen-Belsen.
