Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No symbol of the Holocaust is more profound than Auschwitz. Yet the sheer, crushing number of murders--over 1,200,000--the overwhelming scale of the crime, and the vast, abandoned site of ruined chimneys and rusting barbed wire isolate Auschwitz from us. How could an ordinary town become a site of such terror? Why was this particular town chosen? Who conceived, created, and constructed the camp? This unprecedented history reveals how an unremarkable Polish village was transformed into a killing field. Using architectural designs and planning documents recently discovered in Poland and Russia and over 200 illustrations, tells how this town became the epicenter of the Final Solution. A National Jewish Book Award winner.
