This is a must read for anyone who is interested in the history of the Holocaust. I myself am a big fan so when I came across this book on amazon it was a must buy. Auschwitz gives you a personal account of Dr. Miklos Nyiszlei a Jew who worked as a forensic doctor for Dr Josef Mengele in the crematoriums. Dr. Mengele is known as the "Angel of Death", the man responsible for killing millions of Jews and for performing experiments on thousand others. I have read a few other personal stories from survivors of the camps and this one told a story that I had never heard before. It turns out that those who worked in the crematorium lived a completely different life then those who who lived in the other parts of the camp.

I give this book 5 out of 5 bookmarks!

I am so excited about this book, Reese...the next time I am at B&N, I am TOTALLY picking it up! Is it a novel or is it a memoir...? I also can't wait to read your other book down there...where do you find these awesome picks??? I might even propose this book to book club...

We still need to meet up...seriously, it's been like a year since the first time we talked about it!
