5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and Thought Provoking,, 25 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Doctors from Hell: The Horrific Account of Nazi Experiments on Humans (Hardcover)
This book is one of the most informative books I have ever read on the Holocaust. I have recently visited Poland, I spent a week learning about the Large Jewish Community before the war, and the varied process's the Nazi party used for their mass extermination. I visited Auschwitz, Majdanek, Triblinka and Plaszow concentration camps. Out of the 6 books I read whilst on my visit, this is the one that most stands out for me.

It gives a detailed account of what conversations and statements were made at the Nuremberg trials including Testimonies from survivors of the horrendous experiments. Each chapter is related to a different experiment carried out by Nazi `doctors'. It was not only incredibly interesting, but it provoked me to research the holocaust even more as, after my visit I am even more curious to know every single detail about the atrocious events that occurred.

This book did the perfect job by describing the manner and the place every experiment was operated in. Some pictures of the `results' of the experiments are included, and it is because of these pictures and the detailed testimonies and accounts of the various Experiments that took place, that I would not recommend this book to the emotionally fragile. Then again - if you want to know, there's only one way to find out. After all, I am only 16, and I found this book amazing.

I have just starting reading Ms Spitz's book and would advise you that if you want to learn more about the Holocaust I would recommend Martin Gilbert's "The Holocaust" it is a far superior book to this one in every way, although I do feel obliged to say that "Doctors from Hell" is not the worst book I have read on this subject.
