Description

An English-language translation of a German tale inspired by the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial of 1963-1965 follows the experiences of a survivor who shares observations of Dr. Victor Capesius, who in spite of pre-war Jewish friendships served the Nazis as a "sorter," responsible for selecting inmates for the gas chambers and hard labor. Reprint.

Texte du rabat

The Druggist of Auschwitz is a frighteningly vivid portrayal of the Holocaust as seen through the eyes of criminal and victim alike. Adam, "the last Jew of Schäßburg," recounts with disturbing clarity his imprisonment at the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp. Through his fictional narrative and excerpts of actual testimony at the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial of 1963--1965, we come to learn the true-life story of Dr. Victor Capesius, who, despite strong friendships with Jews, was quick to profit from their tragedy once the Nazis came to power. Interspersed with historical research and interviews with actual survivors, The Druggist of Auschwitz is a vital and unique addition to our understanding of the Holocaust.
