Wow. A terrible, but important recounting of a member of the Jewish work crew assigned to work inside the gas Chambers at Auschwitz. A difficult read because of the horrific subject matter. ( )

This is an amazing story told 60 years after the fact. It's written "interview-style" where she ask him questions and he gives detailed answers. He didn't tell his story for many years, but finally felt comfortable to share his experience and I'm glad he did. Not may sonderkommand's lived to tell their stories... It's tragic and heart wrenching for sure. A definite book for anyone interested in the Holocaust as it's a perspective that I hadn't read or understood before. ( )
