Note: 
The History Firsthand series explores historical events through eyewitness accounts culled from other published sources. In this volume, excerpts describe every aspect of the death camps from the train ride to Auschwitz through liberation and beyond. A detailed introduction and chapter prefaces provide context for the quotations and there is a brief biography of each eyewitness. The first-person perspective is an effective way to present this material but it also makes it more disturbing. For teens who have some basic understanding of the Holocaust. A table of contents, timeline, bibliography and index are included.
