Inside the gas chambers : eight months in the Sonderkommando of Auschwitz by Shlomo Venezia( Book )
12 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 799 libraries worldwide
This is a unique, eye-witness account of everyday life right at the heart of the Nazi extermination machine. Slomo Venezia was born into a poor Jewish-Italian community living in Thessaloniki, Greece. At first, the occupying Italians protected his family; but when the Germans invaded, the Venezias were deported to Auschwitz. His mother and sisters disappeared on arrival, and he learned, at first with disbelief, that they had almost certainly been gassed. Given the chance to earn a little extra bread, he agreed to become a 'Sonderkommando', without realising what this entailed. He soon found himself a member of the 'special unit' responsible for removing the corpses from the gas chambers and burning their bodies. Dispassionately, he details the grim round of daily tasks, evokes the terror inspired by the man in charge of the crematoria, 'Angel of Death' Otto Moll, and recounts the attempts made by some of the prisoners to escape, including the revolt of October 1944. It is usual to imagine that none of those who went into the gas chambers at Auschwitz ever emerged to tell their tale - but, as a 'Sonderkommando', Shlomo Venezia was given this horrific privilege. He knew that, having witnessed the unspeakable, he in turn would probably be eliminated by the SS in case he ever told his tale. He survived: this is his story

Sonderkommando i gasskamrenes helvete by Shlomo Venezia( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in Bokmal, Norwegian and Danish and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Shlomo Venezia kommer fra en fattig jødisk-italiensk immigrantfamilie i Tessaloniki. Nitten år gammel ble han deportert til Auschwitz-Birkenau og havnet i Sonderkommando. Hans vitnemål er enestående ettersom han er en av få overlevende fra Sonderkommando-tjenesten. Sammen med andre jødiske fanger fikk han ansvar for å bære de ihjelgassede ut av gasskammeret og over til kremasjonsovnene for så å rense gasskammeret og gjøre det klart til neste pulje. Med enkle, lavmælte ord beskriver han hva han har sett og opplevd i arbeidet uten å utelate en eneste detalj
