Anatomy of the Auschwitz Death Camp Reviews

    The complete book about Auschwitz, there's only very little, if any, that needs be added to this heavy and detailed account of almost every angle about the biggest malicious death factory in the world's history. It's a difficult read, since the various historians whose articles you'll find in this book have no mercy for the reader and tell things as they were, with equally uneasy quoted testimonies of survivors of the Auschwitz camps. Highly recommended!

    Everything you wanted to know about Auschwitz-Birkenau, but were afraid to ask. Well, not everything-- that would require volumes-- but for a one-volume work, extraordinarily comprehensive. Mr. Gutman amazes, first, in compiling an encyclopedic array of material from various experts in their fields, then arranging it either chronologically, or when called for, to maximum dramatic effect. Though necessarily dry in parts when discussing the technical, in others Anatomy reads like a novel. Though hardly a pleasant story, it is a riveting one, and unique in the annals of man's inhumanity to man. If you're a professional scholar, an amateur history geek, or simply like a good horror story-- or perhaps a bit of all three and looking to find Auschwitz in one book-- here that book is. Read it, and yes, weep.

    You know, honestly, there's just no way to make some glib comment about this.

    This is a good catch-all book on Auschwitz. Very detailed, and interesting. It's a bit long, but not a very hard read.

    This book detailed every aspect of Auschwitz, more than most people would want to know but I found it fascinating.
