About the Author:

Otto Friedrich, born in 1929 in Boston, majored in history at Harvard, where he received a degree magna cum laude in 1948. He went to Europe and worked for the Stars & Stripes in Germany and United Press in Paris and London. Returning to New York, he served as an editor at the Daily News, Newsweek, and the Saturday Evening Post. He was managing editor at the Post from 1965 until the magazine's suspension in 1969. Friedrich's account of the Post's last years, Decline and Fall, appeared in 1970 and was hailed as `a classic of American journalism.' It won the George Polk Award as that year's best book on the press. Among his other books are Before the Deluge: A Portrait of Berlin in the 1920s (1972); Going Crazy: A Personal Inquiry (1976); The End of the World: A History (1982); City of Nets: A Portrait of Hollywood in the 1940s (1986); Glenn Gould. A Life and Variations (1990); Olympia. Paris in the Age of Manet (1992); and The Kingdom of Auschwitz (1994). Friedrich also wrote two novels and, in collaboration with his wife, nine children's books.

About the Author:

Otto Friedrich (1929-1995) was a journalist and cultural historian. A contributing editor at The Saturday Evening Post and Time magazine, he was the author of fourteen books, including Before the Deluge: A Portrait of Berlin in the 1920s.

Book Description Harper Collins, New York, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. I know of no work which brings the reality of this evil place so directly, vividly, accurately, movingly and clearly. It is quite simply the best short account ever produced. The origins and rationale of the camp; the part it played in overall Nazi plans; the way it was built, expanded and run; they key officials in its command structure; the daily lives of its guard and inmates; and most of all the terrifying logic and discipline which kept Auschwitz operating for the greater part of a long war - all of these aspects are related with admirable plainness and concision. For young people in particular, for whom the Holocaust is a mere history, this is a necessary eye-opener, and if they read nothing else about the subject, they should read this." - Paul Johnson/ 112 pages with index and A Note on Sources. Includes a diagram of Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II - Birkenau and a map of primarily Poland, where these camps were located. Remainder mark at bottom. 5 1/4" x 8 Quantity Available: 1. Category: History::Holocaust; HISTORY::Holocaust. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: 003441. Bookseller Inventory # 003441
