"Inside the Holocaust--the Nazi death camps and how they worked"--Cover.
"[This book] is a true and detailed account of what life in the Nazi concentration camps was really like. It tells of the 'singing horses, ' the medical experiments, the children stacked in the snow. It describes the sadistic cruelty of [Adolf] Hitler's dreaded SS, the day-to-day torments they administered and the special horrors they devised. It names names. It gives a picture--vivid, pitiless and complete--of the systematic torture and murder of six million human beings"--Page 4 of cover.
