The man known as Ka-Tzetnik 135633 survived the Holocaust to discover that survival alone would not end his torment. For thirty years, through nightly dreams of terrifying intensity he remained captive to the horrors of his two years in Auschwitz. Finally in 1976 he sought help from Professor Bastiaans, the Dutch psychiatrist who first recognized Concentration Camp Syndrome and successfully treated camp survivors with a therapy involving doses of LSD. Shivitti is the author's unforgettable memoire of that experience.

"An extraordinary book written by an extraordinary person. It is a long time since I have heard a voice like this: the voice of a wounded whose cry is prayer."
-- Elie Wiesel, 1986 nobel Peace Prize Laureate

"Remarkable....Shivitti bears testimony to the regenerative powers of the human being and bears witness to the horror of the Holocaust and the lessons we still need to learn from its obscenities."
-- Stanley Krippner, Professor of Psychology Saybrook Institute

"We have here a little book of immense bearing...I hope that this book not only conveys Dr Nur's spiritual accomplishment and human understanding, but also speeds up the recognition of a form of psychotherapy that could be helping many."
-- Dr. Claudio Naranjo, M.D., author of Character & Neurosis and Transformation Through Insight
