The Sonderkommando of Auschwitz-Birkenau consisted primarily of Jewish prisoners forced by the Germans to facilitate the mass extermination. Though never involved in the killing itself, they were compelled to be “members of staff” of the Nazi death-factory. This book, translated for the first time into English from its original Hebrew, consists of interviews with the very few surviving men who witnessed at first hand the unparalleled horror of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Some of these men had never spoken of their experiences before. Over a period of years, Gideon Greif interviewed intensively all Sonderkommando survivors living in Israel. They describe not only the details of the German-Nazi killing program but also the moral and human challenges they faced. The book provides direct testimony about the “Final Solution of the Jewish Problem,” but it is also a unique document on the boundless cruelty and deceit practiced by the Germans. It documents the helplessness and powerlessness of the one-and-a-half million people, 90 percent of them Jews, who were brutally murdered in the gas chambers of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

In the summer of 1993, as the documentary films on the Sonderkommando were being made, I stood with several survivors of the Sonderkommando next to the White House in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Gideon Greif, We Wept Without Tears: Testimonies of the Jewish Sonderkommando From Auschwitz (Hebrew), Jerusalem: Yad Vashem, 1999. For thirteen years, Gideon Greif met and interviewed surviving members of the Sonderkommando at Auschwitz, but, surprisingly, he first came upon the subject by accident. Appearing on a Holocaust Remembrance Day radio program, he was interviewed with a Jew from Salonika who had been a member of the Sonderkommando. These were the special units that had worked in the vicinity of the gas chambers at Auschwitz.

Jewish Book Council, founded in 1944, is the longest-running organization devoted exclusively to the support and celebration of Jewish literature. Over the years, Greif interviewed all Sondercommando survivors living in Israel. They described not only the specific technical details of the German-Nazi killing program, but also the moral and human challenges they faced while carrying on this horrible work. In time they grew inured and dispassionate, if they didn’t go mad. They even kept some of the ill-gotten gain themselves to barter for self preservation.

Perhaps the most emotional difficult book I've ever read, and I do have a PhD in sociology and am an avid reader. However, it was also enormously compelling. I strongly recommend this book for anyone interested in the Holocaust, humanity, modern evil, human psychology, or history. I found the book through the film Son of Saul which I also cannot recommend highly enough despite the emotional toll exacted in just experiencing these texts.

To say the least, this is a very important work of historical research. Gideon Grief is a historian who has tirelessly worked to promote true and honest research about the Holocaust, at Yad Vashem, with the Auschwitz Memorial and Museum, and many other renowned universities as well as organizations that raise awareness of this subject. There are no exaggerations, just testimony and his historical research to make sure that omissions and mistaken memories, or dates, would not appear in the work. Grief's book is essential for two reasons, it is one that delves into the histories and psyches of the men who were forced to burn the bodies of those murdered at by the Nazis during their horrific "Final Solution," as well as the countless others, who were not Jewish, but were to be eliminated, murdered, and incinerated in the end. Let their memory live - Grief's book is a true tribute to all these victims.

Interviews of People who lived through what must have been the worst WWII experience. Necessary for complete understanding of history as told from living memory.

Profound book. Hard to believe that so many people worked together to murder millions so brutally. Images are etched in my soul. Ghastly

There is no shortage of testimonies about Auschwitz -- thousands of people survived the camp. I've grown up with the stories from the survivors in my own family. But there are so few who actually survived as members of the sonderkommando. This was the most tragic place in the most tragic of places, and the long, frank, thoughtful testimonies offered in this book provide a glimpse not only into the Nazis' death machine, but also into the conflict and the horror these men experienced.

READ IT .. YOU READ THE AWEFUL TRUTH BUT THE STORY NEEDS TO BE TOLD. IT MUST BE TOLD OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN SO WE NEVER FORGET THE CRUELTY MAN IS CAPABLE OF. THESE PEOPLE ARE HEROES AND THANK YOU FOR LIVING TO TELL THIS STORY

This is probably as close as any general reader, student or researcher will come to a reality that even now, 60 years later, remains at once mysterious and horrifying - a must read for anyone interested in this period of time.
I have read all this before.I feel certain the author felt he was breaking new ground but that simply isn't true. These stories have already made the headlines time and again. Each one the same. A carbon copy almost. Yes the stories needed to be to!d because no part of the Holocaust should ever be forgotten or ignored. It was worthy of five stars for that reason alone and for the fact that these men were forced to do the unthinkable. Of course it is beyond the comprehension Of the average person. A necessary book but not a new one. I do highly recommend it just so everyone will know but no matter how it is spoken or written the average person cannot possibly ever understand.
