Product description


"Thank God that occasionally books of the stature of Laurence Rees's superb Auschwitz: The Nazis and the Final Solution are published... Fascinating." (Andrew Roberts Evening Standard)

"Excellent" (Boyd Tonkin The Independent)

"A key to understanding man's inhumanity to man" (Ian Thomson The Guardian)

"Well-written with striking testimonies from bystanders, perpetrators and victims. The interviews with SS men, and sundry European Fascists, are genuinely revealing, and must have been exceptionally difficult to negotiate" (Michael Burleigh Daily Telegraph)

"Devastating. Rees's research is impeccable and intrepid. Ultimately he does at the gut level what Hannah Arendt achieved some 40 years ago at the level of philosophy: he forces the reader to shift the Holocaust out of the realm of nightmare or Gothic horror and acknowledge it as something all too human. Scrupulous and honest, this book is utterly without illusions" (David Von Drehle Washington Post, USA)

Book Description

"An excellent history of Auschwitz with an intellectual honesty that the subject badly needs"
