“This is a unique research study in the history of the Holocaust. This is the story of the Chelmno extermination camp, where Jews were first gassed to death… few people know what happened inside this camp. Dr. Krakowski, former head of the Yad Vashem Archives, brings the reader face to face with the cruel reality… This is one of the most serious and important books documenting and commenting on the horrors of the Nazis based on reliable primary sources.” [Prof. Zvi Bacharach, Ma’ariv]. Among the issues discussed: the Jews of the Warthegau; establishment of the camp and first transports; continuation of transports from the Lodz ghetto; liquidation of the outlying communities of the Warthegau; the respite and the liquidation of the Lodz ghetto; looting of victims’ property; the final months; Chelmno and the trials of Nazi war criminals.
