Resumen del editor

A moving and engrossing symbol of resilience and integrity, Hélion’s daring story of imprisonment and escape under the Nazi regime is now available in this stunning audiobook.

The French painter Jean Hélion’s unique and deeply moving account of his experiences in Nazi prisoner-of-war camps prefigures the even darker stories that would emerge from the concentration camps. This serious adventure tale begins with Hélion’s infantry platoon fleeing from the German army and warplanes as they advanced through France in the early days of the war. The soldiers chant as they march and run, “They shall not have me!” but are quickly captured and sent to hard labor.

Writing in English in 1943, after his risky escape to freedom in the United States, Hélion vividly depicts the sights, sounds, and smells of the camps, and shrewdly sizes up both captors and captured.

In the deep humanity, humor, and unsentimental intelligence of his observations, we can recognize the artist whose long career included friendships with the likes of Mondrian, Giacometti, and Balthus, and an important role in shaping modern art movements. Hélion’s picture of almost two years without his art is a self-portrait of the artist as a man.

Reseñas editoriales

The late Robin Sachs was tasked with the challenge of performing Jean Helion's moving account of his time imprisoned by the Nazi army. Sachs, of course, gives an engaging and sincere performance, putting listeners right into the trenches with Helion as he is captured and then escapes from a Nazi prisoner-of-war camp. Jean Helion, an accomplished abstract painter, had been living abroad in America, but a call to duty sent him home to France, and ultimately right into the Nazis hands. They Shall Not Have Me is a harrowing and unflinching look at one of modern Europe's most dark eras.
