Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A self-portrait, composed by one of the greatest monsters of all time: Rudolf Hoess, the Commandant at Auschwitz, and the man who knew more than almost anyone about how Nazi Germany implemented the Final Solution. Captured by the British after the war, tried, and sentenced to death, he was ordered to write his autobiography in the weeks between his trial and his execution (which fittingly took place in Auschwitz itself). Hoess apparently enjoyed the task, and the most careful checking by researchers showed he took great pains to tell the truth. The result: a vivid and unforgettable picture of the 20th century's defining and most horrific event. Royalties from this book go to the fund to help the few survivors of Auschwitz.

Synopsis:

A self-portrait, composed by a man deeply involved with Nazi Germanys Final Solution, takes the reader behind the scenes in one of Germanys most notorious death camps. Written immediately after his capture, the book offers a most vivid account of this horrific and defining event.

Synopsis:

Responsible for building Auschwitz, Rudolph Hoess was its Commandant from 1950 to 1943, and thereafter was based at the Inspectorate in Berlin. Captured by the British and tried for his crimes, before his death sentence was carried out, Hoess was ordered to write his autobiography. This is it.
