With numerous new documents that were never published before, this comprehensive study highlights the widely forgotten and neglected twin-camp character of the former Mauthausen Concentration Camp complex with key installations in St. Georgen and Gusen. It supplements the conventional narrative of the history of Concentration Camp Mauthausen with new and previously unpublished information from local sources, survivors, liberators, and archives all around the world. It focuses especially on SS infrastructure at St. Georgen and Gusen that is underrepresented in the history of Concentration Camp Mauthausen and the Holocaust in general. The study also supplements the history of World War II and the SSīs strategic involvement in German war production during the final phase of the war with new and previously unpublished information. Thus the study gives special emphasize on joint-venture projects of the Waffen-SS with Steyr-Daimler-Puch AG and Messerschmitt GmbH Regensburg that resulted in the realization of a top secret and most modern underground plant for the serial production of Me-262 jet planes in St. Georgen that might have influenced the course of World War II.

Rudolf A. Haunschmied grew up and lived in the St. Georgen-Gusen-Mauthausen area for more than 30 years. Even as a youngster, before his education as a mechanical engineer, he researched the "lost" history of the area. In 1986 he became a founding member of Arbeitskreis für Heimat-, Denkmal- und Geschichtspflege St. Georgen (AHDG) which gave the Gusen Memorial Committee (GMC) a home until January 2008, when he was again among the founding members of the now independent Gusen Memorial Committee. In 1989 he published the first history of Complex St. Georgen-Gusen-Mauthausen. He has led excursions to the remnants of the camps as well as study circles for years. He advises students and researchers. With Pierre Serge Choumoff, he organized the first local-international commemoration at Gusen in 1995 and founded the Mauthausen-Gusen Info-Pages in 1997. In 1996 and 1997 he founded two city-partnerships and was member of "Reforminitiative Mauthausen" at the Interior Ministery in 2000. In 2007 he contributed to Audiowalk Gusen. The author contributed to many publications and documentations on radio and TV and is currently requesting the opening of the "Bergkristall" tunnels to the public.
