For further research on Auschwitz and Belsen
concentration camps, I recommend the following books:
translation of the book from the Auschwitz museum.
Anatomy of the Auschwitz Death Camp
Incredibly comprehensive book, probably the most comprehensive written about Auschwitz
Concentration Camp. If you are an Auschwitz scholar, you will find this reference
Survival in Auschwitz : The Nazi
Assault on Humanity highly recommend this first-person account that tells in
unemotional terms the day-to-day living and struggling to remain human in Auschwitz
Playing for Time - a
first-person memoir by one of the "Orchestra Girls" of Auschwitz, women forced
to perform operas and classics for their Nazi captives. Incredibly moving.
Auschwitz : True Tales from a
Grotesque Land - memoir of a survivor of Auschwitz Concentration Camp, a riveting
history very much from the female perspective.
Death Dealer : Memoirs of the SS
Kommandant at Auschwitz - autobiography of Rudolf Hess, perhaps history's most
prolific mass murderer. Unapologetic, a revealing look inside the mind of murderer.
Between Two Streams : A
Diary from Bergen Belsen Concentration Camp.
Eyewitness Auschwitz: 3 years in
the gas chambers memoir by one of the few surviving members of the Sonderkommando
Auschwitz : A Doctor's Eye-Witness
Account - written by a prisoner doctor who worked directly under the supervision
of Nazi Doctor Mengele. Not for the faint of heart.
Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen a first-hand narrative of life
at Auschwitz, originally published in Polish.
