As a regular visitor to Auschwitz, as a Tour Manager, for over 10 years, I have collected many books about the camp and The Holocaust. This recently published book contains many new photographs and an excellent history, which would be a useful addition to anyone's library, as it covers topics not usually covered in other books I have seen about Auschwitz.

A chilling book of photographs showing the innocent victims heading to their deaths, sometimes without any knowledge. If you have visited Auschwitz, the photos will reinforce the images you have when you visited the camp A good buy inmy view.

This book compiles many photographs from Auschwitz- Birkenau as well as ones of SS personnel off duty in the retreat located some kilometres from the camp. There is , it must be said, very little original about this book as it combines images from the very moving Auschwitz Album with that of the usual aerial photos taken during the war, and ones of life within the camp,nothing new from those which feature much more comprehensively in the excellent publication put out by the Oscwiecim Museum. Also, interestingly for a miltary historian, the author fails to note that the ones he includes taken buy the Soviet Army post-liberation are actually recreations of life in the women's barracks- for a proper discussion of this, see the DVD The Liberation of Auschwitz with its interview with the Russian photographer who clearly stresses that on arrival, the Soviet Army were only concerned with triage in the first few days of liberation ,and only some weeks later when appropriate indoor lighting arrived for the photographer, did they stage some shots- with the displaced and homeless refugees from the front that were living in the barracks as makeshift shelters. So all in all, no new revelations here, just a bit of recycling really.

I found it very interesting although nothing new. The photographs were mostly taken from the infamous Auschwitz album. And most I believe taken by Hocker himself. Seeing these SS as people removes the comfort that they were different from us. On the outside it would appear not.

Poorly written with grammatical errors. Many captions are identical to the main text meaning you read it all twice. Disappointed with this book.
