The Sonderkommando of Auschwitz-Birkenau consisted primarily of
Jewish prisoners forced by the Germans to facilitate the mass
extermination. Though never involved in the killing itself, they
were compelled to be "members of staff" of the Nazi death-factory.
This book, translated for the first time into English from its
original Hebrew, consists of interviews with the very few surviving
men who witnessed at first hand the unparalleled horror of the
Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Some of these men had never spoken
of their experiences before. Over a period of years, Gideon Greif
interviewed intensively all Sonderkommando survivors living in
Israel. They describe not only the details of the German-Nazi
killing program but also the moral and human challenges they faced.
The book provides direct testimony about the "Final Solution of the
Jewish Problem," but it is also a unique document on the boundless
cruelty and deceit practiced by the Germans. It documents the
helplessness and powerlessness of the one-and-a-half million
people, 90 percent of them Jews, who were brutally murdered in the
gas chambers of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
