Auschwitz : A Doctor's Eyewitness Account
by Miklos Nyiszli and Tibere Kremer and Richard Seaver




Overview -
A New York Times bestseller. The memoir of a Jewish doctor forced to assist Josef Mengele. Shocking and important.

When the Nazis invaded Hungary in 1944, they sent virtually the entire Jewish population to Auschwitz, the concentration camp whose horrors over the years have become synonymous with the Holocaust.

A Jew and a medical doctor, Dr. Miklos Nyiszli was spared from death for a grimmer fate: to perform "scientific research" on his fellow inmates under the supervision of the infamous "Angel of Death" Dr. Josef Mengele. Nyiszli was named Mengele's personal research pathologist. During his work, he was eyewitness and involuntary participant, chief physician of the Auschwitz crematoriums, and drafted number affidavits of dissection and forensic finding (signed with his own tattoo number). Miraculously, he survived to give this terrifying and sobering account.

Written in 1946, soon after the end of World War II and the liberation of the concentration cames, Nyiszli's work was one of the first books to tell the horrors of Auschwitz. It has been numerous languages and has sold hundreds of thousands of copies.

"An honest book, and an important one. It tells of events which though gruesome, need to be sold and retold until their meaning for our times is accepted."--Bruno Bettelheim, from his Introduction
