"'This book is filled with evil ... it has no literary quality and reading it is agony', comments Primo Levi in his introduction. 'The author comes across as what he is: a coarse, stupid, arrogant, long winded scoundrel'. And yet ' ... it is one of the most instructive books ever published'. Rudolph Hoess was Commandant of Auschwitz during the war. Taken prisoner by the British he was ordered to write his autobiography in the weeks between his trial and his execution. This is it." "An extraordinary and unique document: Hoess was in charge of the huge extermination camp in Poland where the Nazis murdered some three million Jews, from the time of its creation (he was responsible for building it) in 1940 until late in 1943, by which time the mass exterminations were half completed. Before this he had worked in other concentration camps, and afterwards he was at the Inspectorate in Berlin. He thus knew more, both at first-hand and as an administrator, about Nazi Germany's greatest crime than almost anyone. Captured by the British, he was handed over to the Poles, tried, sentenced to death, and taken back to Auschwitz and there hanged. Book jacket."--Jacket

Becoming Eichmann : rethinking the life, crimes, and trial of a "desk murderer" by David Cesarani( Book )

4 editions published in 1960 in Spanish and German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1941 to 1945 Adolf Eichmann organized the mass deportation and extinction of Jews in Europe. Working at his desk and in the field, he was at the center of Nazi genocide. This book, the first account of Eichmann's life to appear in over forty years, reveals a surprising portrait of the man once seen as epitomizing the "banality of evil." Drawing on recently unearthed documents, historian Cesarani explores Eichmann's early career, when he learned how to become an administrator of genocide, and shows how Eichmann developed into the Reich's "expert" on Jewish matters, becoming ever more hateful and brutal. This sobering account deepens our understanding and challenges our preconceptions of Adolf Eichmann, and offers fresh insights into both the operation of the "Final Solution" and its most notorious perpetrator.--From publisher description
