Has anyone read this book and would they recommend it?

Any other non-fiction books on Auschwitz anyone can recommend? I'm going there in September.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know where you are but if there is a Jewish museum near toyou I would recommend you visit......and when you do go please take tissues...I have not been to Aushwitz but have visited another camp and was glad of them and a strong swig afterwards. I also needed them for the Jewish memorials in Budapest......keeps reminding me how horrid human beings often are.

We will be stopping near the Jewish Quarter in Krakow I think. I've been warned to take tissues by those I know who have been.

I haven't done Budapest yet, but that will come at a later date.
