Eyewitness Auschwitz : Three Years in the Gas Chamber Paperback
by Filip Muller
Filip Muller came to Auschwitz with one of the earliest transports from Slovakia in April 1942 and began working in the gassing installations and crematoria in May.
He was still alive when the gassings ceased in November 1944.
He saw millions come and disappear; by sheer luck he survived.
Muller is neither a historian nor a psychologist; he is a source-one of the few prisoners who saw the Jewish people die and lived to tell about it.
Eyewitness Auschwitz is one of the key documents of the Holocaust.

Review by teebivden
This was the most difficult book I have ever read, and one of the most important books I will ever read. I found I was unable to read the text for long periods of time; I would become overwhelmed with a host of emotions that had to be dealt with... But I did finish the book, and feel better for it. This story must be told, for the past and especially for the future. The experience of reading this book will be with me for the rest of my life. I highly recommend this book for any serious student of the Holocaust or modern genocide.
