All prisoners at Auschwitz saw many terrible things, but no one saw and recorded as much as Wilhelm Brasse - Auschwitz Photographer. Working under orders of the Germans, he took as many as 50 thousand identity photos - among them portraits of SS officers, and of children used for medical experiments by Dr. Josef Mengele. At the end he rescued 40 thousand inmate pictures. The book combines images with eyewitness accounts of inmates, SS men and historical notes painting a comprehensive picture of the camp daily life including the work of the photography service, the orchestra, sports and even the brothel. It contains over 300 in many cases previously unpublished photographs and personal accounts. The book will introduce the reader to the unheard-of reality of the camp: football matches, exchange of goods, a brother and true love. These unique subjects are portrayed in the album with over three hundred photographs, many of which have never been published before. Additionally, scholarly studies written in cooperation with experts are included, expanding readers' knowledge about that time. The book has images of Camp life, Children, Crematoria, Doctors (inc. Mengele), Gas chambers Germans, Men, Women, Zywiec my town, etc. There is information on the photos, prisoners, biographies, and a chronology. The camp held and executed hundreds of thousands of Jewish prisoners, amongst the other prisoners were Gay people, Gypsies, Politicals, and Prisoners of War
