"When the Germans invaded Hungary in 1944, they immediately shipped virtually the entire Jewish population to Auschwitz. Separated from his family, Dr. Miklos Nyiszli [1901-1956] was chosen to direct the medical pathology work carried on among the prisoners by the Nazis for the purpose of 'scientific research' in that most infamous of all concentration camps. Through the doctor's eyes, we relive not only the day-to-day horrors of life in the KZ but also witness the slow disintegration of an empire built to last a thousand years. What Dr. Nyiszli lived through few will want to believe or even read about." - dust jacket.
