Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anatomy of the Auschwitz Death Camp (Paperback)
The book takes the reader through conception to reality of the Auschwitz & Brikenau Concentration Camps. Each of the Chapters are written by different Authors, who have a detailled knowledge of that particular issue - for example, there is one Chapter solely dedicated to the Crematoria - who built them, how much they cost, and the minute details of "burn rates". Through the various Chapters, the reader becomes intimate with the various different aspects of what life was like for those who experienced this Hell, and also from the perspective of those who perpetrated this horror. The book also covers the great efforts that were taken to disguise the terrible crimes that took place here, from the destruction of the Gas Chambers & Crematoria, and also why the Allies did nothing to stop the genocide. Having started to read the book before actually visiting Aushwitz & Birkenau, and finished it upon return, one can recommend this book as the definitive text on what Aushwitz Birkenau. However, as with any book, the full horror of what actually happened can only be truly appreciated by visitng the Camps themselves. It has been said that for an individual to be ignorant of the past, is tantamount for humanity to be scared of its future is terrifyingly true.This book stands as a crystal clear view of the past crimes that mankind is capable of, and makes the individual appreciate that freedom is precious, and needs to be treasured.
