Overview

One persistent question echoes across the decades: What kind of person conceives, commits, and condones these atrocities? The answer, it would seem, could be "anyone"—indeed, the view that the extermination of the Jews was a crime inposed by a few mad people upon an unwilling Europe is one of the most dangerous of all.

This groundbreaking re-examination of the world's most infamous death camp features more than a hundred new interviews with both survivors and persecutors.

In the end, more than 1.1 million human beings were murdered at Auschwitz, including more than 200,000 chidren. Their stories continue to touch us—and caution us—more than half a century later.
