Konzentrationslager Auschwitz: 6,500.000 Tote klagen An! - "Auschwitz Concentration Camp Dead Speak!" Early testimonies of Auschwitz camp prisoners. Published by Stern, Vienna, 1946 - First Edition. German.
An early and important testimony about the daily horrors and massacres committed by the Nazis in Auschwitz as documented by Auschwitz prisoners themselves, accompanied throughout by 13 disturbing photos of emaciated prisoners and torture facilities in the camp. "This booklet is not the work of a professional writer... but factual reports of simple people, people who wrote down their experiences in Auschwitz as they were without exaggeration... it is a powerful indictment against all those murderers, who in arrogance and megalomaniacal blindness brought all of Europe back to medieval times... those responsible for the Auschwitz murders have put a mark of shame on the forehead of the German people that will not be erased for generations...". (from the publisher's introduction). The booklet contains extensive reports on the extermination facilities at the camp and how the Nazis built them, the horrific way in which 56 ovens operated in four crematoria, the path of the transports to extermination, the gas chambers and how the Nazis used gas for mass murder, and more. Among other things, prisoners' testimonies about "24 Hours in Birkenau" appear - detailed testimony about the horrors committed by the Nazis in the camp on April 24, 1944, grueling testimonies about how the Nazis tattooed the prisoners' arms with their prisoner number, harsh testimonies of the abuse of women, children and infants, the harsh sights of family members separated from each other during selections, grueling testimonies about the medical experiments the Nazis performed on prisoners' bodies, especially women in Block 10, resistance activity, and rare testimonies about the liberation of the camp by the Red Army, and more.
