2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a unique, eyewitness documentary record of life inside Auschwitz at its full operational peak. The account is recalled with impressive lucidity and matter-of-factness by Wilhelm Brasse, Prisoner No. 3444, who, due to his professional skills, escaped extermination by becoming a photographer whom the ever-well-organized Nazis obliged to document the running of the camp, including such details as Dr. Mengele's infamous experiments ... Brasse took tens of thousands of photographs of prisoners, hundreds of portraits of SS-men, and documented some so-called medical experiments ... In March 2010, Maria Anna Potocka conducted an interview with Wilhelm Brasse. The outcome is this book and its edited tales of the prisoner-cum-chief-photographer of Auschwitz. There is an introduction by the historian Teresa Wontor-Cichy, the academic editor at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum. The book is generously illustrated with photographs from Wilhelm Brasse's own archives, as well as from the photographic archives of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum and Yad Vashem"--Amazon.com

Nobody leaves : impressions of Poland by Ryszard Kapuściński( Book )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'A peculiar genius with no modern equivalent, except possibly Kafka' - Jonathan Miller Regarded as a central part of Kapuscinski's work, these vivid portraits of life in the depths of Poland embody the young writer's mastery of literary reportage When the great Ryszard Kapuscinski was a young journalist in the early 1960s, he was sent to the farthest reaches of his native Poland between foreign assignments. The resulting pieces brought together in this new collection, nearly all of which are translated into English for the first time, reveal a place just as strange as the distant lands he visited. From forgotten villages to collective farms, Kapuscinski explores a Poland that is post-Stalinist but still Communist; a country on the edge of modernity. He encounters those for whom the promises of rising living standards never worked out as planned, those who would have been misfits under any political system, those tied to the land and those dreaming of escape
