This album, an extraordinary find, was originally discovered during the tumult of the first days after the liberation. It reveals how two SS photographers documented the arrival of shipments of Jews to the platform in the Birkenau concentration camp, the selection process, and their path to the gas chambers and the crematoria. The photographs also memorialize the piles of possessions left by the Jews which were sorted in the 'Canada' Barracks. They are accompanied by three articles that describe the development of the camp, the Holocaust of Hungarian Jewry, and the story of how the album was found; a fourth focuses on the camera as a historical tool. The 189 pictures, arranged in chronological order and reproduced in this album for the first time, are unusually powerful, not least because 70% of the people shown have been identified.

Book Description Jerusalem : Yad Vashem ; Oswiecim : Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, 2002. Hardcover. Condition: New. 276 pages : il. ; 31 cm. ' It may have been the magic touch of the “angel of history,” or just a simple miracle, that led to the survival of the rare photographic document, the “Auschwitz Album”, to be donated to the photo archives of Yad Vashem. This Album is unique in the entire world. It documents, in about two hundred photos from every direction and from every angle, the process of arrival, the enlisting, the selection, the confiscation of property and the preparation for the physical liquidation of a Jewish transport. This Transport came from the area of Carpatho-Ruthenia, a region annexed in 1939 to Hungary from Czechoslovakia, and arrived at the ramp of the extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau on May 1944. '.
