Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A military historian who specializes in 20th-century Germany, Baxter has assembled photographs documenting the operation of the most infamous camp where men, women, and children prisoners were worked to death or executed in gas chambers during World War II. Some are from the construction and operation period, others taken just after the camp was liberated by allies, and still others taken today. Distributed in the US by Casemate.

Synopsis:

The concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau was the site of the single largest mass murder in history. Over one million mainly Jewish men, women, and children were murdered in its gas chambers. Countless more died as a result of disease and starvation. 'Auschwitz Death Camp' is a chilling pictorial record of this infamous establishment. Using some 250 photographs together with detailed captions and accompanying text, it describes how Auschwitz evolved from a brutal labor camp at the beginning of the war into what was literally a factory of death. The images how people lived, worked and died at Auschwitz.

The book covers the men who conceived and constructed this killing machine, and how the camp provided a vast labor pool for various industrial complexes erected in the vicinity. 'Auschwitz Death Camp' is shocking proof of the magnitude of horror inflicted by the Nazis on innocent men, women and children. Such evil should not be forgotten lest it reappear.
