Recent Comments "Auschwitz"

The details of this book are overwhelming. I was struck by the enormity of this project to write such an incredibly detailed account of the machinations of the "Nazi killing strategies", and explain in such detail the systemic planning involved. It is helpful to read this before Filip Mueller's memoir about life at Auschwitz working in the creamatorium. Certainly not to be considered "summer reading" but an essential part of my preparations for my trip to Europe.

The book is definitely one of the most definitive works about the most well known of the Nazi death camps, Auschwitz. It begins with the history of the Polish town of Oświęcim and then details the construction, expansion, medical experiments, etc. that took place inside the complex. It is not a light read, but an excellent book for anyone interested in trying understanding Auschwitz and the holocaust as a whole.

Great strength of this book is to give Auschwitz back Its place in history. No, ofcourse the Auschwitz concentration camp did not suddenly rise out of nothing. To understand how such a horrible place could come into existence: read this book.

I didn't read every word of this, but this places Auschwitz (the camp) in a much bigger picture, which in turn makes the part of the Holocaust that happened there both more tragic, and also slightly less. Strange. But I hadn't realized that the purpose of that camp evolved over 5 years from Soviet POW camp to slave labor to genocide camp. In fact, it changed constantly during the course of the war. It's amazing that, in spite of very poor planning, so many people were so methodically murdered.

Obviously, not light reading. Very informative. I've visited Auschwitz I & Birkenau & have read memoirs & other histories of Auschwitz, & there were details included in this book that was new information for me. There are lots of reprinted diagrams & blueprints & personal accounts shared. I'm glad I read it.

This is a stunning collection of personal accounts from the death camp from War World II.
