Description
In "The Druggist of Auschwitz", Adam - known as "the Last Jew of Schassburg" - recounts with disturbing clarity his imprisonment at Auschwitz. Through Adam's fictional narrative and testimonies at the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial of 1963-65, we learn the true-life story of Dr. Victor Capesius, who, despite strong friendships with Jews, was quick to profit from their tragedy once the Nazis came to power. Interspersed with historical research and interviews with actual survivors, "The Druggist of Auschwitz" is a frighteningly vivid portrayal of the Holocaust.
