At Auschwitz, over one million people were murdered, systematically, in cold blood. First-person accounts and archive images bring this terrible story into focus. This book tells the story of Auschwitz, stage by stage, in a way that children and young people will understand. Beginning by explaining who the Nazis were and why they chose Auschwitz as the site of a death camp, and ending with a look at the dilemmas which face Auschwitz today, the book gives a straightforward, easily-comprehensible account of what actually happened behind the barbed wire. The focus on one camp provides a real sense of place and in-depth history. Direct quotations and first-person accounts, extracts from the official record-books and statistics, all help to bring the story alive.
