This is a rather short but important text and it gives the reader an account of Auschwitz from the point when it was just a town and how it turned into a horrific site used for genocide and brutal inhumane acts Auschwitz actually began as an emigration camp for polish people before the start of WWI and it wasn't until 1940 that the Germans then took over itSteinbacher gives us a solid honest account and even though I've read uite a lot concerning Auschwitz and the various other death camps there were still parts in this book that I didn't know about and which were of great interestWhat I did find rather alarming is that the level of Holocaust deniers are actually on the rise How on earth can a person stand there and say that it never happened Ignorance immediately comes to mindAuschwitz is an important place that will always exist and it's main purpose is to be a physical harrowing reminder to show exactly what evil atrocities that humans are capable of committing

Auschwitz Geschichte und NachgeschichteItz Geschichte Kindle book details Auschwitz's birth growth and horrible mutation into a dreadful city How it came to be and how what followed was allowed to occur is a story that everyone needs to understand and rememb. This volume’s aim is to represent the various aspects of the history of the Nazi concentration and extermination camp at Auschwitz in their most important contextsSteinbacher gives a no frills account of Auschwitz’s evolution from a “frontier town” at the end of the 19th century to a location synonymous with genocide and horror during and post WWII The infamous camp began as an emigration camp for seasonal workers prior to WWI Following WWI Polish refugees took up tenancy and it wasn’t until the beginning of 1940 that the camp passed into German hands serving as a retention center for political opponents Over the course of the war Auschwitz was fast becoming the central showpiece of the ‘Final Solution of the Jewish uestion’ within the state extermination programmeSteinbacher’s bevy of evidence elucidates that the SS knew the evils going on they knew the end goal and they knew how to achieve that goal Thus all were complicit in organized mass murder although the perpetrators excused themselves from guilt by defining their victims as inferior hiding murder behind a veil of “moral legitimacy” Steinbacher also exposes companies that benefitted from Auschwitz and other camps Himmler and Goring both within Hitler’s inner circle colluded together to entice businesses to take advantage of Auschwitz Himmler viewed this as the realization of a long held dream – harnessing prisoner labour to economic ends IG Farben perhaps the greatest business beneficiary even went so far as to build one of the biggestand most expensive investment projects of the German Reich in the Second World War”I appreciate this book for being exactly what the title promises and recommend it as a serious read to any World War IIHolocaust scholar who is looking for a deeper understanding of the ever present uestion of “HOW” This book gives an honest thorough and blunt portrayal of Auschwitz’s devolution into the central hub of the Nazi death machine These pages focus on accurately memorializing a place that will forever be emblematic of the horrors man is capable of committing Nothing is spared nothing is ignored Steinbacher lays out the horrible truths of Auschwitz’s history in a matter of fact way that allows readers to infuse their own emotions along the way Of course it is a tough read as any graphic history of a death camp can be expected to be but it is well worth your time
