Product description

Review

"The best of the many books on Nazi concentrations camps and the society behind them." --C. Wright Mills

"Kogon omits nothing and spares no one. His account, magnificently controlled and dispassionate . . . achieves a devastating impact." --The Nation

"A description of the closest thing to hell in human history." --Reinhold Niebuhr
