A short essay on the horror of Auschwitz
on 18 May 2014
This is not a book, rather a short essay on some of the details about the atrocities and methods used to commit attempted genocide and 'ethnic cleansing' at Auschwitz -Birkenau. We tend to forget that it was not just the European Jewish community that was targeted, but to a lesser extent also Romas, Poles, Russians and other elements of society, at this death camp.
For all of its' brevity, it makes sobering reading, but the sad fact is, that this type of human behaviour was going on well before the 20th Century and still continues to happen today.
The info. on the product page does say it is an estimated 19 pages in length. I was lucky to pick it up as a 'free' offer on the Kindle site. It is worth a read, but the 'normal' price of ~ £1.90 is perhaps a bit high, for such a short monograph.
