Reviews

Survival in Auschwitz | History of Genocide

Survival In Auschwitz is a great book on the experience of surviving in a concentration camp. If you are looking for a book that provides details of bloody torture and beatings, this is not it. While the inhumane treatment and torture is everywhere in the book, it is not of the âblood and gutsâ variety that the modern generation may be used to after watching years of action movies. The author is incredibly detached when describing events that happen around the camp (the author describes that you have to do this to survive in such an unpredictable and harsh environment). Sometimes when the author is describing horrific events, it is as bland as describing what he had for breakfast that morning.
