'A definitive work. Essential.' --Choice
'[A] prodigious work of scholarship... In chronicling the history of the first Nazi extermination camp at Chelmno, Montague shows how the camp broke the psychological barrier for establishing subsequent factories of death, and became the model for death camps such as Treblinka and Auschwitz.' --Jewish Book World
From the Inside Flap
As the first extermination camp established by the Nazi regime, the Chelmno death camp stands as a crucial but largely unexplored element of the Holocaust. This book is the first comprehensive work in any language to detail all aspects of the camp's history, organization, and operations and to remedy the dearth of information in Holocaust literature about Chelmno, which served as a template for the Nazis' "Final Solution." Includes previously unpublished first-hand accounts and photographs.See all Product Description
