Chosen as the central location for the annihilation of the Jewish people, it was equipped with several extermination facilities and crematoria. Extermination was carried out by means of Zyklon B gas, a substance that had previously been tested on Russian prisoners of war. Birkenau (Auschwitz II) was established in October 1941, three kilometers from Auschwitz  .

This album, an extraordinary find, was originally discovered during the tumult of the first days after the liberation. It reveals how two SS photographers documented the arrival of shipments of Jews to the platform in the Birkenau concentration camp, the selection process, and their path to the gas chambers and the crematoria. The photographs also memorialize the piles of possessions left by the Jews which were sorted in the 'Canada' Barracks. They are accompanied by three articles that describe the development of the camp, the Holocaust of Hungarian Jewry, and the story of how the album was found; a fourth focuses on the camera as a historical tool. The 189 pictures, arranged in chronological order and reproduced in this album for the first time, are unusually powerful, not least because 70% of the people shown have been identified.

Interesting photo collection of one day's arrival in Auschwitz/Birkenau death camp near the end of the war, when the Nazis had taken over Hungary. These are Hungarian Jews arriving as adults and children fresh from the trains, standing at the ramps where selection is made for those who will work and those who will be executed by gas. Children and old folks almost certainly will die.

What strikes a modern reader after the initial shock of seeing such "ordinary people" is that in fact they appear to be rather poor. Their clothes are often a bit shabby and ill-fitting. These are not German Jews of the 1930's modern era. They are not educated and well off Hungarian Jews, who presumably could have left Europe altogether long before this 1944 roundup.

The women over 21 or so are all covering their hair, as Orthodox Jewish women do when they married, since their hair is shaved - either a wig or kerchief was standard. Their shoes and sometimes lack thereof indicate further that this train has come from a countryside area of depressed-income people. The elderly men appear in beards; one has been identified as her rabbi when she, the internee, survived the war and saw the album later in life. Few people wear glasses at all, another sign of country folk. Two handsome teenage boys look somewhat better off in their identical coats, perhaps they are brothers; their caps look quasi military.

Try to spend time really analyzing the photos. If you saw these people arriving on a street near you today, coming off some big buses, who would you think they are, based on the visual cues? They remind me most of the Hasidim of New York area.

These were the type of frommer Jews of the old East European shtetls that modern secular Jews of Germany, Austria and USA did not want to be associated with, as it would taint their image.

The horror of such photos is in knowing that most of them will be killed, and perhaps they know it, but not exactly how or when.

The Hungarian Jews were very late in getting rounded up as opposed to German, Austrian, Dutch, French or Polish Jews.

I wonder myself why the Nazi officer took the photos, but when a nation of shutterbugs love their cameras and their documentation, then a whole war gets graphically noted and duly recorded, to the shame of the Nazis' descendants, whereas in the Baltics or in France, it was very seldom indeed that such recordkeeping and photography were used in dealing with the Jewish question. The famous case of the Velo d'Hiver (Vel d'Hiv) incident in which the French police, busdrivers and train systems rounded up about 13,000 French Jews for deportation, has only ONE photograph of the whole affair! So whether one really wants to credit the Nazis with foresight or just plain stupidity in documenting their atrocities, well, that is a whole debate, but if the world wants to say, NEVER AGAIN! Well, it helps to know to WHAT exactly we are saying "Never again". (Nonetheless, slaughter continues, but...that is neither here nor there...)

Also of interest to a reader is the possibility of seeing masses and masses of such photos of the wartime, not necessarily this kind of Judenaktion, but of everyday people, simply by going to Ebay and typing in "WWII photos". There are hundreds of thousands of original photos sitting in photo albums all over USA and Europe, especially in Russia and the Ukraine, that show what the daily life of soldiers and civilians really was. Taking photos inside a prison camp would have been much tougher - either one is an inmate (with no camera?) or one is an SS officer with an eye to the future; I.e., don't create any evidence for later incrimination!

Whole albums are for sale at pretty healthy prices. With modern computers, you can view the images and faces quite close up without having to buy any of them.

I originally saw these photos on exhibit in Chicago, and couldn't get them out of my mind. So, I bought the book. The photos aren't at all gory, there are no shots of skinny corpses or gruesome remains in ovens. Instead they are photos of every day people. I think that makes them all the more chilling because these are people we can relate to. It's hard to put this book down once you start reading it. The story is fascinating, the photos will haunt you. You can clearly see the looks on the peoples' faces. It's a look of blind terror, the faces of people resigned to their doom. As a reader you know most all of these people will be dead an hour after these photos were taken. It's not light reading but it's one of my most remembered books.

I saw a reference to this book in another that I was reading, and decided to buy a copy: But they were all priced around $219. dollars, which I could not afford. So I found the Panstwowe Museum site, went to their book store, found the book at about $50 + US, pls postage it will run around $75.00. So I ordered it.
My question, is why doesn't Amazon buy from them (and maybe it does), and sell them for $120. which should be a good profit for them, good price for the buyer.
