"The moving and almost incredible story of Oswiecim [Auschwitz] concentration camp. Written under the tension of the vibrant poignancy that is an inseparable part of the miseries Poland has endured. Written by a Polish Underground Labor 'historian,' experienced in the underground struggle, who drew his material from actual contact with persons who underwent, and saw others suffer, the things that he describes. A compilation of the viciousness of Nazism as seen at Oswiecim, so that all who read might understand and make a just evaluation of that which Poland faces, of the problem of ridding all Europe of a scourge that gives rise to such things as Oswiecim." - Foreword. 48 page stapled booklet. Includes a one-page facsimile of the cover of the 1942 Polish first edition, published underground. Full-page map shows locations of major concentration camps in Poland. According to Wikipedia, this book was written by Natalia Zarembina (1895-1973) and was the first documentary about the Auschwitz concentration camp, based on reports from refugees or people dismissed from the camp, mainly Eryk Lipinski, Henryk Swiatkowski and Edward Bugajski. Also includes information about the network of slave camps in Poland, including Camp Districts, Temporary Concentration Camps, General Concentration Camps, Forced Labor Camps, Concentration Camps for Clergy, Concentration Camps for Women, Concentration Camps for Jews, Camps for "Improvement of the Race" (where "the only duty that is absolutely enforced [of the young defect-free Polish and German inmates] is the regular performance of sexual intercourse with the partner assigned"), Camps for "Correction of Youth", and Concentration Camps for Children So-Called "Educational Institutes". Front cover loose but present. Lacking back cover. Unmarked with somewhat above-average wear. Moderate toning to contents. Binding intact. A rare copy of this early Auschwitz exposé. 8.25" x 5.4".
