Reseña del editor:

The overwhelming horror and scale of the genocide associated with Auschwitz isolates it in the human imagination. In the 1940s, however, this epicentre of the Holocaust was located at the edge of a town of 30,000 that had become the focus of a Germanisation programme involving wholescale urban re-construction, massive industrial investment and ruthless ethnic cleansing. "Auschwitz, 1270 to the Present" elucidates how, step by step, this otherwise ordinary prewar town became Germany's most lethal killing site: a transformation wrought by human beings, mostly German and mostly male. Who were the men who conceived, designed and constructed the death camp? What lay in their minds as they systematically developed a human slaughter house? Using the hundreds of architectural plans that the Nazis, in their haste, omitted to destroy, as well as blueprints and papers in the municipal archive of Auschwitz, the provincial archive of Upper Silesia, and the federal German archives, Robert Jan van Pelt and Deborah Dwork show that the town of Auschwitz and the camp of the same name were the centrepiece of Himmler's ambitious project to recover in Nazi-ruled Poland the German legacy of the Tuetonic Knights and Frederick the Great. Analysing the close ties between the 700-year history of the town and the five-year evolution of the concentration camp in its suburbs, they offer an interpretation of the origins and creation of the death camp. Drawing on oral histories of survivors, memoirs, depositions and diaries, the authors explore its ever more murderous impact on the daily lives of its inmates. A work of scholarship and narration, this is a history of the site that has come to epitomise evil.

Descripción New Haven : Yale University Press, 1996. Hardcover. Dustjacket. 443 pp. Small tear in dustjacket. - (A) peerless work of documentation and research that sheds new light on this century's darkest address . -- Kirkus Reviews (starred)No symbol of the Holocaust is more profound than Auschwitz. But, despite the infamy of the place, the crushing numbers of dead, the overwhelming scale of the crime, and the vast abandoned site of chimneys and rusting barbed wire isolate Auschwitz from us.How could an ordinary town become a site of such terror? Why was this particular town chosen? Who conceived, created, and constructed the camp? This unprecedented history reveals how an unremarkable Polish village was transformed into a killing field. Using architectural designs and planning documents recently discovered in Poland and Russia and over 200 illustrations, Auschwitz: 1270 to the Present traces the successive stages of how Auschwitz became the focus of a Germanized Poland and the epicenter of the Final Solution. Condition : very good copy. ISBN 9780300067552. Keywords : HISTORY, World War, 1939-1945. Holocaust, Jewish (1933-1945) Auschwitz. Nº de ref. del artículo: 277949
