In the opening, the author shows how the ideas embodied in Hitler's Maine Kampf's book were implemented one by one in the 'Final Solution', and through quotes from the book itself the author shows that Hitler did everything in his power to implement the master plan which he outlined in his book regarding the control of the Aryan "race of lords" and the total elimination of all his opponents, including the false strategy he adopted in foreign policy, a satanic plan that claimed the lives of millions. Detailed description of the atrocities in the Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen, Buchenwald, Dachau, Mauthausen, Ravensbürk, Stutthof, and Majdanek camps. In addition appear harsh photographs, some of which were published here for the first time, of the bodies of those who perished in the various camps as found at the end of the war by the Allied liberators, as well as of the noticeable shock on the liberators themselves.
