Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Filip M ller (born 1922, Sere, Czechoslovakia) was one of very few Sonderkommandos to have survived Auschwitz, the largest Nazi German extermination camp. He witnessed the exterminations and gassings of a million Jews and lived to write one of the key documents of the Holocaust. Published in 1979, M ller's Eyewitness Auschwitz - Three Years in the Gas Chambers was his first-hand account of the events behind the walls in the Auschwitz camps.He was brought up into a country with increasing Nazi propaganda, where it was not long until tens of thousands of Jews were deported out of Czechoslovakia into the Auschwitz camps in Poland. In April 1942, Filip M ller, who was only twenty years old, came with one of the earliest transports to Auschwitz and was given "Prisoner Number 29236." Assigned to work in the construction of crematoriums and installation of gas chambers, M ller witnessed "the families, the townships and the cities of Jewish people come," and was ordered to burn the dead bodies in crematories. His extraordinary situation of cremating corpses was the only reason the Nazis kept him alive.
