9780094728509: Against All Hope: Resistance in the Nazi Concentration Camps, 1938-45

"Inspiring and informative, this book fills large gaps in what we know about resistance in the concentration camps." Kirkus Reviews

Finally in paperback, in this major and comprehensive work, hailed by Le Monde as a "monumental study," Hermann Langbein shatters the myth that all prisoners of concentration camps, during World War II, passively let themselves be slaughtered. A prisoner himself and one of the leaders of resistance at Auschwitz, Langbein painstakingly documents the detailed account of the history of the camps and the story of the resistance. Spanning the initial years to the chaotic weeks before liberation, Against All Hope is the first systematic presentation of organized resistance. Deeply moving, it is an unforgettable testament to the resilience and determination of the human spirit.
