The Wild Place Review Æ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Operation HumanityThey came to the former storm troopers' camp packed into cattle cars They were the hum. The Wild Place is Kathryn Hulme s account of the 5 years 1945 1950 she spent as an administrator at several camps for displaced persons DPs in Germany after WWII ended It is a book that I wish people could read but due to estate problems it has been out of print for ages And since its publication run in 1953 was fairly limited there aren t a lot of used copies floating around either It s an absolute shame because Hulme was a magnificent writer the book won the Atlantic Monthly non fiction award for 1953 and the insights she imparts are particularly relevant to our current national discussion about refugeesI d been aware through the also hard to locate documentary film The Long Way Home that many Jewish people languished in DP camps after liberation They couldn t go home to where the war had certainly not eradicated anti Semitism and Britain dragged its heels on allowing them into the British Mandate of Palestine I had been less aware that many non Jewish people faced similar circumstances Many of the Poles at Wildflecken for instance would have found their hometowns now part of the USSR rather than Poland And even if they harbored hopes of returning to post Potsdam Poland it soon became clear that the free elections the country had been promised were anything but and Poland effectively became a Soviet satellite The early chapters of The Wild Place deal with Hulme s introduction to the almost overwhelming logistics of maintaining order in what amounted to small city of 20000 people set in the midst of a country whose own people were struggling to return to some sense of normalcy after the war It s almost amusing to read about camp residents stealing cows from the local farmers but then you think those farmers may have hated Hitler too At first there is a sense of optimism that the majority of DPs will be resettled soon and the camp just has to get them through one winter a task that is less daunting once generous care packages of food start arriving from the Red Cross But as time grinds on it becomes obvious that the path forward for most DPs is anything but clear and certainI cried at least three times reading this 260 page book The first incident involved the enterprising young man Ignatz who had become Hulme s chauffeur after managing to cobble together the spare parts needed to repair an abandoned automobile He tearfully informed Hulme that his baby had died She had not even known that he had a new baby let alone that the infant was ill view spoilerIgnatz held open the door of his room gesturing us to precede him into the steamy sanctum that contained all he cherished on earth In one startled glance I saw for the first time his young child faced wife the small daughter clinging in fright to her skirts and the handmade crib in a corner of the room hiding a high puffed lace pillow with a tiny shape upon it so infinitesimally small that is made no indentation The Venezuelan doctor leaned over the crib and murmured in his own tongue Prematura He touched the minute blue fingers through which a cotton lily had been drawn Possibly a seven month baby he said which should never have been taken from hospital inside of two or three months The infant had perished of malnutrition in its fifth week Chouka was saying in a low shocked voice Ignatz why didn t you come to us but it was only a rhetorical uestion She knew that he could not have borne to have his wife and baby moved back to the hospital as she would promptly have ordered Even as she asked the uestion the little wife moved closer to her man in fright Another dangerous separation threatened Ignatz stood with his hands clasped in front of him like a culprit awaiting sentenceThen he said Tonight Schwester can we keep him with us In his eyes was the knowledge of the dreary basement under Chouka s TB hospital that we used for the camp morgue He had helped her hospital manager to pour cement and make a mortuary table so bodies would no longer have to lie upon the floor He also knew the camp rules prompt removal to the mortuary after deathThe doctor nodded permission and said to us in French After all starvation is not contagiousChouka went over to the crib and lit the one white candle standing at its head on the window sill The candle holder was a jam tin that Ignatz had cut and curled into a shiny decorative tray Beside it stood the parts of a salvaged carburetor he was rebuilding for my car He knew how to do absolutely everything except ask for help hide spoiler
