Commandant of Auschwitz : autobiography by Rudolf Höss( Book )

32 editions published between 1959 and 2001 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'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
Kommandant in Auschwitz; autobiographische Aufzeichnungen by Rudolf Höss( Book )

85 editions published between 1958 and 2017 in German and Undetermined and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introduction by Broszat (pp. 7-21) describes Höss's imprisonment and interrogation before his trial in Poland, during which the autobiography was written, as well as the history of the manuscript and its publication. Analyzes Höss's personality, as reflected in the memoirs and in his testimony at the Nuremberg Trials, noting his matter-of-fact description of the most horrifying events. Comments that Höss in no way fits the popular image of a mass murderer; he was an efficient, conscientious administrator who loyally carried out orders, seemingly unaware of their criminality despite his complaints on the effort required to overcome his feelings and his occasional sentimental reflections on the victims. Pp. 23-151 contain Höss's autobiography; pp. 153-167 his account of the history and organization of Auschwitz; and pp. 167-182 his reminiscences of Heinrich Himmler
