Summary"Through more than 280 documentary photographs from the archives of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum and reproductions of artistic works by former prisoners, this book records the history of Auschwitz and what it looks like today. It includes photographs taken by the Nazis of the construction and expansion of the camp, of individual prisoners and scenes from daily life and of the machinery of mass murder itself; clandestine photographs, taken by prisoners; aerial photographs, taken by the Allies; photographs taken at the time of the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet forces; and photographs of the site as it is today." —Book jacket
