"Auschwitz: A History In Photographs" is a truly grim and heart-breaking reminder of the reality and the horrors of WW2. This is a story of "Hell on Earth". It seems so utterly incomprehensible that this all really actually happened less than 80 years ago.

In this book - Every picture tells 1000 words about the pain, the suffering, and the inhumanity that so senselessly destroyed millions of lives and was carried out on the orders of that vile and despicable fiend, Adolf Hitler.

Warning! - Many of the 280+ images contained in this truly disturbing pictorial history of Auschwitz (Germany's most notoriously brutal extermination camp during WW2) are, without question, a real-life horror story like never believed possible.

It seems so incomprehensible that such nightmarish inhumanity as this was, in fact, a daily reality for so many people.

Throughout Auschwitz' existence more than a million human beings (men, women, children, babies) were systematically starved, beaten, tortured, used as experimental guinea pigs, and, inevitably, murdered there.

How does one begin to rationalize the sheer atrocity of this truly devilish Nazi Holocaust which was wickedly orchestrated by that horrendous monster, Adolf Hitler, and his equally despicable and evil cohorts?

This book of human history is a horrific statement like no other. It leaves the reader speechless being witness (after the effect) to this pictorial record of cold-blooded, human depravity of the vilest and most hateful kind.
