Sixty years after its liberation, the story of the most infamous mass murder site in history is told in a new BBC TV series.
It is the site of the largest mass murder in the history of the world - Auschwitz. Yet few know the true and surprising history of this most infamous place, nor how it fitted into the Nazis' overall plan for the mass extermination of the Jews - what they called the 'Final Solution'. For Auschwitz, via its destructive dynamism, became both a microcosm of the Nazi State and the logical consequence of Hitler's warped worldview. Combining rare archive footage, CGI illustrations of the camp never before seen on television and dramatic reconstructions of the key decision-making moments, the story of Auschwitz and the horrific ideology behind it unfolds.
This set includes the Book & DVD.

“A complete historical guide to the horrors that took place over 60 years ago, at times a harrowing book to read but also a book you will not want to put down.The book is well written and draws the reader into the lives that the people led at this time in history.It explains the descisions that drove a nation to attempt to extermenate a race of people with little or no remorse.”
