Commandant of Auschwitz; autobiography by Rudolf Höss ( Book )
31 editions published between 1959 and 2001 in English and German and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"'This book is filled with evil ... it has no literary quality and reading it is agony', comments Primo Levi in his introduction. 'The author comes across as what he is: a coarse, stupid, arrogant, long winded scoundrel'. And yet '... it is one of the most instructive books ever published'. Rudolph Hoess was Commandant of Auschwitz during the war. Taken prisoner by the British he was ordered to write his autobiography in the weeks between his trial and his execution. This is it." "An extraordinary and unique document: Hoess was in charge of the huge extermination camp in Poland where the Nazis murdered some three million Jews, from the time of its creation (he was responsible for building it) in 1940 until late in 1943, by which time the mass exterminations were half completed. Before this he had worked in other concentration camps, and afterwards he was at the Inspectorate in Berlin. He thus knew more, both at first-hand and as an administrator, about Nazi Germany's greatest crime than almost anyone. Captured by the British, he was handed over to the Poles, tried, sentenced to death, and taken back to Auschwitz and there hanged. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

Death dealer : the memoirs of the SS Kommandant at Auschwitz by Rudolf Höss ( Book )
6 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
By his own admission, SS Kommandant Rudolf HOss was history's greatest mass murderer, having personally supervised the extermination of approximately two million people, mostly Jews, at the death camp in Auschwitz, Poland. Death Dealer is the first complete translation of HOss' memoirs into English. These bone-chilling memoirs were written between October 1946 and April 1947. At the suggestion of Professor Sanislaw Batawia, a psychologist, and Professor Jan Shen, the prosecuting attorney for the Polish War Crimes Commission in Warsaw, HOss wrote a lengthy and detailed description of how the camp developed, his impressions of the various personalities with whom he dealt, and even the extermination of millions in the gas chambers. This written testimony is perhaps the most important document attesting to the Holocaust, because it is the only candid, detailed, and (for the most part) honest description of the Final Solution from a high-ranking SS officer intimately involved in carrying out the plans of Hitler and Himmler. With the cold objectivity of a common hit-man, HOss chronicles the discovery of the most effective poison gas, and the technical obstacles that often thwarted his aim to kill as efficiently as possible. Staring at the horror without reacting, HOss allowed conditions at Auschwitz to reduce human beings to walking skeletons - then he labelled them as subhumans fit only to die. Readers will witness HOss's shallow rationalizations as he tries to balance his deeds with his increasingly disturbed, yet always ineffectual, conscience
