Review: AUSCHWITZ: A HISTORY by Sybille Steinbacher

auschwitzMissDaisyAnne from MissDaisyAnne’s Garden recently posted a review of Auschwitz:  A History by Sybille Steinbacher.  Here’s a snippet:

This book is a detailed history of Auschwitz, the concentration camp, and the town of Auschwitz.  Auschwitz or Osweicim was first mentioned in writing in 1178, it saw many upheavals in the history of the town and the area it was in, sometimes being under German influence, or Polish. Jews are first recorded as being in this area in the mid 1400’s. In the later half of the 19TH century most of the Jewish community were professionals, many owned a business; while the Catholic community was almost all farming related. In early September of 1939 Germany invaded Poland and Auschwitz was taken.
