History of Auschwitz and the "Final Solution" of the Nazis. Incorporates viewpoints of both survivors as well as those who worked for the SS. The author provides eye witness accounts of the degradation that was endemic in this and the other camps for those who were killed as well as those co-opted to assist in the killings to save their own lives without it being prurient. Although heart wrenching this is a book that everyone should read. Hopefully no one who reads this will ever utter the words "those people", the first step of dehumanizing people.

An overriding theme is that you don't know how you would behave unless you were in these situations yourself. That goes both for the perpetrators as well as their victims.

Covers more than just Auschwitz, it covers the other camps too, as well as a lot of viewpoints from those who were the architects of the Nazi atrocities.

A very interesting read.
