The Good Old Days: The Holocaust as Seen by Its Perpetrators and Bystanders

Overview

One of the most hideously sickening yet riveting books of our time. A first-hand account of the greatest mass murder in history as told by those who executed the plans for this genocide. What is different about this book is that it contains carefully compiled letters, journal entries, and voluminous correspondence that prove beyond doubt that more members of the German population than ever before admitted to, knew about the Holocaust while it was happening.

Hardcover. Brand New. The title refers to a caption in the scrapbook of Kurt Franz, the commandant of the Treblinka concentration camp. Underneath the heading "Those Were the ... Days." Reproduced here, are pictures of smiling officers at a site where some 700,000 people were exterminated in the gas chambers. To refute revisionist historians who negate the testimony of Holocaust survivors, and to disprove those Germans who said they were coerced into murdering Jews, the German authors--Klee is a journalist, Dressen a lawyer and Riess a historian--present the damning and harrowing diaries, letters, photo albums and official reports of Germans who willingly participated in the Final Solution. A member of a unit that killed 33,771 Jews in the Ukranian Babi Yar ravine boasts: "It's almost impossible to imagine what nerves of steel it took to carry out that dirty work down there." Of the annihilation of thousands of Jews in White Russia, a commander says, "The action rid me of unneccessary mouths to feed." And wagging its tail for the camera is Franz's dog, which on numerous occasions was set upon Jews to bite off their genitals.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The title refers to a caption in the scrapbook of Kurt Franz, the commandant of the Treblinka concentration camp. Underneath the heading ``Those Were the Days,'' and reproduced here, are pictures of smiling officers at a site where some 700,000 people were exterminated in the gas chambers. To refute revisionist historians who negate the testimony of Holocaust survivors, and to disprove those Germans who said they were coerced into murdering Jews, the German authors--Klee is a journalist, Dressen a lawyer and Riess a historian--present the damning and harrowing diaries, letters, photo albums and official reports of Germans who willingly participated in the Final Solution. A member of a unit that killed 33,771 Jews in the Ukranian Babi Yar ravine boasts: ``It's almost impossible to imagine what nerves of steel it took to carry out that dirty work down there.'' Of the annihilation of thousands of Jews in White Russia, a commander says, ``The action rid me of unneccessary mouths to feed.'' And wagging its tail for the camera is Franz's dog, which on numerous occasions was set upon Jews to bite off their genitals. (Nov.)
Library Journal
As the first sentence of the foreword states, ``This is a horrible book to read, and yet one that should be read.'' Klee, Willi Dresen, and Volker Riess have compiled a brutal and chilling rebuttal to the revisionist historians who question the statistics on, as well as the very existence of, the ``final solution.'' This book is a collection of interviews, photographs, diary entries, and reports from German eyewitnesses, including members of the SS. They offer frightening insight into the mindset of the people who carried out the attempted extermination of an entire race. A disturbing, necessary reminder of the past and a warning for the future, this is recommended for larger public libraries as well as special collections.-- D.L. Braddock, Corbit-Calloway Memorial Lib., Odessa, Del.

    Excellent

    The book may have translation errors, but the work is interesting. The book is based on German Opinions, which is quit rare indeed. I highly reccoemnd this book to anyone interested in the holocaust. The other book mentioned by the above critic is written by a holocaust victim. Therefore that kills any relation it would have to this work. This book is written by those who took part in the 'Holocaust.'

    HORRIBLE

    This book was the worst piece of 'work' I've ever read. I began to see a few errors in the writing. I thought it was a typo at first. As I continued reading, I realized that it was actually translation errors. I have a Master's degree in French and have done translations, but this is a poor excuse for a translation. Many sentences are incomprehensible due to these errors, which in turn makes the entire topic incomprehensible. I do not recommend this book to anyone!
