A liberal Catholic journalist, editor of the Frankfurter Hefte, gives us the facts of concentration camp life, from daily routine to the prisoners' illegal camp government and the psychology of the SS personnel. This German best seller is not a memoir, but a treatise on the whole system of concentration camps with their organized brutality and destruction of personality which formed a crucial part of the Nazi system.
