Oswiecim: Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, 2000. Hardcover. New in publisher's shrink wrap. Quarto. Red and black paper-covered boards, with white lettering on front cover and spine. English translation by William Brand. This is a fascinating comprehensive historical survey, and a definitive collection of essays on the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration/death camp from its construction in 1940 until its liberation in 1945. Each of the five volumes discusses a different aspect of the camp history and has a different subtitle. These include: "The Establishment and Organization of the Camp", "The Prisoners - Their Life and Work", "Mass Murder", "The Resistance Movement" and "Epilogue". The work details life in the camp, its purpose, inner-workings, management, victims, design and its place within the broader historical context of the Holocaust and the Third Reich. The multi-volume set is illustrated throughout with b&w reproductions of original photographs, documents, design schematics and plans from the camp. Some of the shrinkwraping has been partially ripped. (Inventory #: 40526)
