schema:reviewBody""Hermann Langbein was allowed to know and see extraordinary things forbidden to other Auschwitz inmates. Interned there in 1942 and classified as a non-Jewish political prisoner, his assignment as clerk to the chief SS physician of the extermination camp complex allowed his access to documents, conversations, and actions that would have remained unknown to history were it not for his witness and his subsequent research. Also a member of the Auschwitz resistance, he sometimes found himself in a position to influence events, though at his peril." "People in Auschwitz is very different from other works on the most infamous of Nazi annihilation centers. Langbein's account is a scrupulously scholarly achievement intertwining his own experiences with quotations from other inmates, SS guards and administrators, civilian industry and military personnel, and official documents. Whether his recounting deals with captors or inmates, Langbein addresses and analyzes the events and their context objectively, in an unemotional style, rendering a narrative that is unique in the history of the Holocaust. This monumental book helps one to comprehend what has so tenaciously challenged understanding."--Jacket."
