Review quote

"Beautifully written... a welcome addition to the study of human degradation in the Nazi concentration camps. What makes this book especially important is that it is the eyewitness story of Daniel Bennahmias, who was a member of the Sonderkommando - people relegated to the most horrible duty of any concentration camp inmates, that of removing freshly gassed bodies from the gas chambers at Auschwitz, where four gas chambers often exterminated 10,000 people per day." - International Society for Yad Vashem; "The horrors that a young Sephardic Jew named Daniel Bennahmias was forced to endure seem incomprehensible.... His story and the saga of the others in the special command have long been shrouded in mystery. The work of the Sonderkommando was a closely guarded secret." - Jewish Bulletin"
