Bewildering Stories welcomes...
Mitchell is Fiction Editor for the Blue Lake Review and has published fiction, poetry and essays extensively. He is the author of a novel and two story collections, one of which is scheduled to appear later this year.
“Auschwitz Dreams” introduces Marty, who lives comfortably in a cohesive social unit in a big city. He’s like many other boys in his own group as well as many others; he takes his cultural heritage for granted and isn’t very concerned with its history and meaning. Highly realistic super-dreams bring home to him that Auschwitz does have a special meaning for him and his coreligionists.
But that is not where the story really ends, of course. Auschwitz is one concentration camp among many. Marty is everybody, and Auschwitz is a human event. It stands as a stark warning that it can reappear again in many forms, anywhere and at any time.
