The fate of the intellectuals in Auschwitz has been the topic of numerous previous essays and whether detrimental or alternately, of even minimal benefit has been repeatedly considered, but not decisively resolved. We discuss whether intellectuality could have offered any relief from suffering in L’univers concentrationair? Observations on four survivors of Auschwitz, all with different personalities will be analyzed, reviewing their pre- and post-war lives and searching for any expression of intellectual moments of respite.
