SS Kommandant Rudolph Höss (1900–1947) was history's greatest mass murderer, personally supervising the extermination of approximately two million people, mostly Jews, at the death camp in Auschwitz, Poland. Death Dealer is a new, unexpurgated translation of Höss’s autobiography, written before, during, and after his trial. This edition includes rare photos, the minutes of the Wannsee Conference (where the Final Solution was decided and coordinated), original diagrams of the camps, a detailed chronology of important events at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Höss's final letters to his family, and a new foreword by Auschwitz survivor Primo Levi. Death Dealer stands as one of the most important—and chilling—documents of the Holocaust.

Talk about whitewash. It was interesting to hear this Nazi's perspective on his duty, and how "well" he treated the Jews and other prisoners in Auschwitz. Read full review

Review: Death Dealer: The Memoirs of the SS Kommandant at Auschwitz

User Review  - Erin - Goodreads

A must-read for anyone bewildered by the people who caused so much destruction during WWII. Getting into this guy's mind is horrifying, not for its evil as much as for the matter-of-fact approach to it. His ability to fool himself is truly astonishing. Read full review
