Review:

"Brings the reality of this evil place so directly, vividly, accurately, movingly and clearly to the mind of the reader."--Paul Johnson

Synopsis:

This is a history of Auschwitz from its foundation in 1940 to the end of the war. The book explores its origins and rationale, and the application of modern technology in the destruction of life, including the invention of the gas chambers. It draws on personal testimonies to describe the brutalities of daily life suffered by the inmates in the camp and enforced by rigid discipline of the camp commandant and SS guards. Auschwitz was a world unlike any other, created and governed according to the principles of absolute evil, yet it demonstrated that in every group, whether officer or prisoner, great heroism and self-sacrifice were possible.
