Auschwitz Death Campby Ian Baxter
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.
“…pictorial record of this infamous establishment…a grim reminder of what man is capable of doing to man.”

The point of the book is to show through pictures. 90% of the photos are so small you can't make anything out. Spelling errors here and there but the tiny photos are worth asking for a refund. Print version is probably worth the money but not on the nook.
It is not the right word to say I enjoyed this book. It opened my eyes wider to the realities of what human beings can do to eachother.....for what? My heart broke for all those who suffered and died. Good book overall.
