Menschen in Auschwitz WienHermann Langbein was allowed to know and see extraordinary things forbidden to other Auschwitz inmates Interned at Auschwitz in and classified as a non Jewish political prisoner he was assigned as clerk to the chief SS physician of the extermination camp complex which gave him access to documents conversations and actions that would have remained unknown to history were it not for Menschen in e. I’ve read a lot of Holocaust memoirs and studies in the course of my life but never before have I come across anything as objective and detailed as H Langbein’s “People in Auschwitz” H Langbein according to his own admission had a certain advantage over other historians he was a former Auschwitz inmate himself and therefore not only he had his own memories to rely on but he also could interview multiple survivors while working on this study and create what is perhaps the most detailed account of Auschwitz that exists so far What I appreciated the most in this particular study was the objectivity of it One has to give it to Langbein not taking sides while speaking about as personal an experience as Auschwitz was must have been extremely difficult yet he completed the task admirably By separating the book into two parts the inmates and the jailers he paints a realistic picture of what life was like not only for ones incarcerated there but for the perpetrators as well By bringing up multiple survivors’ accounts he doesn’t leave a single stone unturned while describing the ins and outs of the most infamous extermination camp He talks about extremes of the Birkenau camp the so called Muselmänner and the camp VIPs that is privileged inmates who were given mostly clerical tasks or worked in the Kanada sorting detail or the Sonderkommando and therefore led a completely different life from those who were at the very bottom of the camp’s complex hierarchy He also talks about the jailers and their types the sadistic ones who took pleasure in beating and murdering the inmates and the ones who risked their own lives to help the inmates and got executed for it Langbein doesn’t separate the inmates and the jailers into good ones and into bad ones respectively; instead he examines the human nature of each individual and admits that even among the inmates there were rotten types and that even among SS doctors or guards were the ones who helped the inmates and were later acuitted based on the survivors’ testimonies in their defense The amount of research that went into this study is truly astounding and worth separate praise After you finish this book you’ll be able to name most of the notable inmates Kapos and the SS leaders; I was actually left with a feeling that I knew all these people personally and to create such a vivid portrait of each is definitely no easy feat and particularly when it comes to historical studies It’s fascinating not dry at all but instead is filled with everyday scenes that will remain in your memory long after you’ve finished the book and meticulously researched If one is serious about studying the Holocaust and Auschwitz this book should definitely be on their must read list
