About this title:

Synopsis: All prisoners at Auschwitz saw many terrible things, but no one saw and recorded as much as Wilhelm Brasse - Auschwitz Photographer. Working under orders of the Germans, he took as many as 50 thousand identity photos - among them portraits of SS officers, and of children used for medical experiments by Dr. Josef Mengele. At the end he rescued 40 thousand inmate pictures. The book combines images with eyewitness accounts of inmates, SS men and historical notes painting a comprehensive picture of the camp daily life including the work of the photography service, the orchestra, sports and even the brothel. It contains over 300 in many cases previously unpublished photographs and personal accounts. The book will introduce the reader to the unheard-of reality of the camp: football matches, exchange of goods, a brother and true love. These unique subjects are portrayed in the album with over three hundred photographs, many of which have never been published before. Additionally, scholarly studies written in cooperation with experts are included, expanding readers' knowledge about that time. The book has images of Camp life, Children, Crematoria, Doctors (inc. Mengele), Gas chambers Germans, Men, Women, Zywiec my town, etc. There is information on the photos, prisoners, biographies, and a chronology. The camp held and executed hundreds of thousands of Jewish prisoners, amongst the other prisoners were Gay people, Gypsies, Politicals, and Prisoners of War

Book Description Sussex Academic Press, United Kingdom, 2015. Mixed media product. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Book DVD. This is a unique eye-witness documentary record of life inside Auschwitz at its full operational peak, as recalled, with impressive lucidity and matter-of-factness by Wilhelm Brasse, prisoner no. 3444, who, due to his professional skills, escaped extermination by becoming a photographer whom the ever-well-organised Nazis obliged to record photographically the running of the camp, including such detail as Dr Mengeles infamous experiments. Wilhelm Brasse was born in 1917 in Zywiec of an Austrian father and a Polish mother. Before the war Brasse worked in a photographic studio in Katowice. For refusal to join the Wehrmacht, he was sent to Auschwitz, where from 1941 to 1945 he worked in the Identity Service as a photographer. He took tens of thousands of photographs of prisoners, hundreds of portraits of SS-men and documented some so-called medical experiments. After the war ended, he returned to Zywiec where he has been living ever since. In March 2010 Maria Anna Potocka conducted an interview with Wilhelm Brasse. The outcome is this book and its edited tales of the prisoner-cum-chief-photographer of Auschwitz, together with a film with extracts from the interview.There is an introduction by the historian Teresa Wontor-Cichy, the academic editor at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum. The book is generously illustrated with photographs from Wilhelm Brasses own archives, as well as the photographic archives of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum and Yad Vashem. The book is published in association with the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Poland. The publication has been supported by the following ministries and organizations: The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland. Bookseller Inventory # AAG9781845195397
