The Evacuation, Dismantling and Liberation of KL Auschwitz.
Covering the last half year of the camp‘s existence, the author attempts to show the degree to which the general political-military situation of the Third Reich and the associated economic conditions influenced the last days of the Auschwitz concentration camp. He presents the evacuation and liquidation of the camps, the transports and Death Marches, and the work of the Soviet Commission for the Investigation of Fascist German Crimes.
Andrzej Strzelecki also offers a broad description and documentation of the work of the Polish Red Cross hospital on the site of the former camp.
The book contains numerous accounts by prisoners of their experiences during the last days of the camp and after liberation, and also by physicians and nurses who saved the lives of sick prisoners.
