Reviews

"In concise and sober fashion, German historian Steinbacher traces the history of Auschwitz from a medieval trading town to the major extermination camp of the Holocaust. . . . Steinbacher, a visiting fellow for European studies at Harvard, avoids extensive analysis or morality tales; the meaning of Auschwitz is in the details, which she provides with clinical precision." --Publishers Weekly
"A multitude of books have been written on the camp, yet this brief volume has much to offer both laypersons and scholars interested in its history. . . . A cogent, penetrating work." --Booklist

"A thoughtful overview of a place terrible to remember--and one that must always be remembered." --Kirkus Reviews
