Description

When the Nazis invaded Hungary in 1944, they sent virtually the entire Jewish population to Auschwitz. 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. Miraculously, he survived to give this terrifying and sobering account.

    I was prepared to be educated and horrified by the contents of this book. Yet, despite the author's words, I felt shortchanged. I feel that the only way to keep from repeating the past is to face it fully, accepting the reality with open eyes. This author had a unique opportunity to paint a grim reality with perfect colors. But he missed saying so much.

    I read this book approximately 30 years ago, having found it in a used book store. Having long ago lost it I was happy to purchase it again. The first time I read it I remember feeling terrible about what the author went through,and astonished at the numbers of innocent people's murdered at the hands of the demented Reich. Now that I have read it a second time, my feelings for the author have changed somewhat. I now find myself questioning if he did everything he could to alleviate suffering, or if his main priority was to save his own skin. Of course, who can say how they would react if forced into such a grave situation. I highly recommend this book to any serious student of WWII or Nazism in general. The reader will come away with a very clear picture of the lengths the Germans went to exterminate those deemed unworthy to live. Some day, hopefully, such stories will no longer have to be written.

    Wow!! So moving and heartbreaking and shocking!!! The SS were truly demented and used by the devil to wipe out Jesus Christ's People - the Jews. Hard to believe this happened in such abomination. God bless the people that survived!!!!
