    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 it.Steinbacher gives us a solid, honest account, and even though I ve read quite 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 interest.What 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 mind.Auschwitz 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.

    I can t say I found any use in this book that I haven t found in other books besides a few tidbits about holocaust denial, and some details about post war and historical Auschwitz the town there was nothing new in this book It s the pocket book Auschwitz history, it touches every subject there is to learn about the camp, the guards, the prisoners, the resistance, the factories, everything besides the great Canada corruption scandal which got Rudolf Hoss kicked out of the place but in such small details, mere names, dates and numbers This is dangerous one of the biggest values tragedies like the holocaust can have to humanity is the education, so history won t repeat itself, but when everything is summarized so quickly and minimalistic ally, how can anything properly educational can come out of it The first page in the book is a dislodged, mixed up snippets of testimonies each only a few lines and that s about the only touch into the human experience of the crimes committed in that camp, when the best way to make people come out of the shock of the horrific details is by seeing human emotions in fellow humans who survived the camp I don t recommend this book, at all, not for a proper reading.

    Sybille Steinbacher s Auschwitz A History tells the story of the small Polish town of Auschwitz, which was converted into one of the Nazi party s greatest concentration camps during World War II The genre of Steinbacher s book is historical military nonfiction Auschwitz was settled in the late thirteenth century by the Germans as a border town Since it was located close to Poland s border, it was attracted by small and large trade routes Included with the trade routes, Auschwitz acquired different cultural religious groups, especially Jews Catholics who controlled the town did not force punishment laws on the Jewish people, which contradicted the actions of surrounding towns In the beginning of 1940, the Nazi party had its eye on Auschwitz The town was in a prime location because of being close to borders Nazis began construction on the new to come concentration camp They took many Polish and Jewish people prisoner and forced them to work on the construction IG Farben, a German chemical and pharmaceutical company, built a factory near Auschwitz This company was a very large chemical company for the Germans, and they used Polish and Jewish people as well to work for a cheap price Many workers were killed do to the harsh working conditions at IG Farben Nobody was aware of the plan the Germans had for Auschwitz, but they soon found out Extermination processes began at concentration camps in 1941 and were occurring in many concentration camps The process the Germans used to kill people was horrifying SPOILER ALERT First, they made the prisoners strip naked, which made them think they were showering Second, when all of the prisoners are inside the chamber , then the Germans lock the doors and release a gas, Zyklon B After the prisoners were all killed, a clean up crew would go into the chamber and remove all of the bodies and take them to the crematorium The Nazis killed mostly Jews, Gypsies, and Poles As the war ended, Auschwitz ended it s extermination processes When the war ended, several hundred members of the Auschwitz SS were seen in many courts in Poland Many of these court cases ended in the death sentence for the Germans I would give Auschwitz A History a four out of five rating I never knew how tragic and terrifying Nazi concentration camps were until I read this book My favorite part of Auschwitz A History is practically the whole book It walked me through the entire life of the small town and how it became a concentration camp I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about military history.

    If you expect nothing than a brief overview of the subject, then you won t have any issue with this work Otherwise, prepare to be somewhat disappointed The brevity of the book does something of an injustice to the depth of the atrocities committed in these camps, however, it s worth reading if you know little about the subject.

    A rather remarkable book It looks at Auschwitz from the point of view of the development of the camp over time The start as a resettlement camp for workers moving into the area to get jobs to an internment camp to house undesirables for the Reich to the concentration and extermination camp we are familiar with.The book is rather short at about 175 pages but it does pack a lot of information into those pages Stories of the camp leadership as well as how the mentalities of the victims are examined My only real complaint is that there was not any footnoting of facts The endnotes contain a good bibliography mostly German works since the author is German but the statements within the book are not directly cited.If you re interested in this aspect of World War II history this book gives a good over view but is by no means comprehensive.

    Not as good as the mini series about the camp, but a good overview with some facts about the history of the area.

    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 contexts Steinbacher 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 Question within the state extermination programme Steinbacher 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 harness ing prisoner labour to economic ends IG Farben, perhaps the greatest business beneficiary, even went so far as to build one of the biggest and 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 II Holocaust scholar who is looking for a deeper understanding of the ever present question 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.
