The Camp of Death

London: Liberty Publications, 1944. First edition. Softcover. Octavo. 30pp. Original illustrated wraps with black lettering on cover, protected by modern mylar. Pamphlet from the Liberty Publication Series: "The stark record of life–and death–in the notorious Oswiecim (Auschwitz) concentration camp reveals the cunning, calculated brutality by which the Germans are attempting to destroy the Polish nation. It is difficult for civilized people to comprehend the racial theory by which the Germans justify their policy of extermination in Poland." (Adamson). Illustrated with a full page drawing by Peregrine: "They sometime return the Ashes." The descriptive text is a verbatim translation of a pamphlet published in Poland's Underground by the "Movement of the Working Masses of Poland (W.R.N.). First published in July, 1944. The numbers of people who died in Auschwitz as estimated in the note at rear is staggering and in stark contrast to the substantially lower official numbers of victims based on the official German camp-roll obtained secretly by the Polish Underground. The back cover, inside and out, lists more than 150 concentration and forced labor camps in Poland, including camps for Clergy, Improvement of the Race, Correction of Youth and two camps in Lithuania, respectively Norway.
