This book offers a landmark exploration and deeply moving account of resistance in the Nazi concentration camps. Available in paperback for the first time, "Against All Hope" is a meticulous history of a dark period that blows apart the myth that most prisoners of Nazi concentration camps were passive participants in their own genocide. Hailed by Le Monde as a 'monumental study', author and onetime leader of in-camp resistance at Auschwitz, Hermann Langbein scrupulously documents the history of the camps and the story of the resistance. Spanning the initial years to the chaotic weeks before liberation, "Against All Hope" is the first systematic presentation of organized resistance and a poignant testament to the resilience and determination of the human spirit.
