Well written history that gives a very detailed complex picture of a very complex time. Gives both first person comments and careful interpretation of them. Helps to show the situations in which people found themselves and how different people react differently. Weaves together information that has been available for a long time--Anne Frank, Odd Nansen, Primo Levi, court records, and adds new information available from local records. Contains photos that provide a moving counterpoint to the text, and detailed charts and maps. Highly recommended--worth the length.

This is the best book I've ever read on the camp specifics of the Nazi era. It is extremely well written, and yet scholarly, with a massive number of footnotes. It ranges from objective numbers of inmates, deaths, camp locations to often heartrending tales of individual inmates and horrifying descriptions of the SS criminals who enabled this despicable human tragedy. Be prepared for a long read: it's worth it.
