Forty years ago Allied soldiers liberated Buchenwald, Dachau, Belsen, and other concentration camps, and came face to face with the human ruins of the Nazi system of slave labor and genocide. What they saw transformed the definition of evil in the Western mind. Inside the Vicious Heart captures the shock of that discovery by telling the story of the camp liberations as experienced by American GIs and other eyewitness, including Eisenhower, Patton, Joseph Pulitzer, and Margaret Bourke-White. Through their diaries, letters, and photographs we see how those Americans finally made the world believe what until then had only been rumored.

"A fine book, a signal contribution to the literature of the Holocaust."--Chicago Sun-Times

"Abzug has done an excellent job...Not a book to dwell on...but not one that should be overlooked either."--The New York Times

"Well and memorably done."--Kirkus Reviews
