Rudolf Hoss has been called the greatest mass murderer in history. As the longest-serving commandant of Auschwitz, he supervised the killing of more than 1.1 million people. Unlike many of his Nazi colleagues who denied either knowing about or participating in the Holocaust, Hoss remorselessly admitted, both at the Nuremberg war crimes trial and in his memoirs, that he sen Rudolf Hoss has been called the greatest mass murderer in history. As the longest-serving commandant of Auschwitz, he supervised the killing of more than 1.1 million people. Unlike many of his Nazi colleagues who denied either knowing about or participating in the Holocaust, Hoss remorselessly admitted, both at the Nuremberg war crimes trial and in his memoirs, that he sent hundreds of thousands of Jews to their deaths in the gas chambers, frankly describing the killing process. His "innovations" included the use of hydrogen cyanide (derived from the pesticide Zyklon B) in the camp's gas chambers. Hoss lent his name to the 1944 operation that gassed 430,000 Hungarian Jews in 56 days, exceeding the capacity of the Auschwitz's crematoria. This biography follows Hoss throughout his life, from his childhood through his Nazi command and eventual reckoning at Nuremberg. Using historical records and Hoss' autobiography, it explores the life and mind of one of history's most notorious and sadistic individuals.

    I felt the book, “Architect of Death at Auschwitz: A Biography of Rudolf Höss” was written by a brilliant writer, John Pimomo, and the author presents a highly accurate biography of the life of Höss as well as a detailed and profoundly serious analysis of the man and the horrors he committed all of which are extensively researched and fully referenced. In my opinion, I believe this scholarly writer has created a highly insightful book and an exceptional and extremely valuable historical work tha I felt the book, “Architect of Death at Auschwitz: A Biography of Rudolf Höss” was written by a brilliant writer, John Pimomo, and the author presents a highly accurate biography of the life of Höss as well as a detailed and profoundly serious analysis of the man and the horrors he committed all of which are extensively researched and fully referenced. In my opinion, I believe this scholarly writer has created a highly insightful book and an exceptional and extremely valuable historical work that is informative and factual along with an accurate and deep analysis of Höss. I believe the author’s intelligent analysis is very relevant today to raise much-needed awareness of the devastation and the heartless killing that man can do. As it is pointed out at the beginning of the book, “The painful memory of the Holocaust must be recalled and experienced no matter how many years pass. Simon Weisenthal, a Holocaust survivor who dedicated his life after the war to tracking down and gathering information on fugitive Nazi war criminals, said: ‘For evil to flourish, it only requires good men to do nothing.’ Even a ‘grocery clerk’ or farmer can kill millions if given the power.” I felt this book is essential to understanding and recognizing evil growing and existing in the world, and a book that should be read, discussed and studied to prevent future occurrences of the unthinkable horrors people can create. I also believe the author has put together a highly accurate, comprehensive, and close-up view of this mass murderer from his loveless childhood to his later execution. It is a book that I feel should be studied, read, and re-read several times to gain the ability to recognize evil supremacy in the world and to not let atrocities ever occur again. Very well done and highly recommended!

    I actually tried for this book as my husband and daughter are both very big into anything related to WWII. My husband has read a lot of books, watches the history channel and has DVDs about WWII. Therefore, I was very excited to have won an autographed copy (which even came with a personalized note) of this book. My husband is currently reading the book and as stated, he has a lot of background when it comes to anything about the great war. He told me that there is information in this book that I actually tried for this book as my husband and daughter are both very big into anything related to WWII.

He told me that there is information in this book that he had never heard about before. That has to be the best praise I could possibly give this book and the author. Thank you Mr. Primomo for selecting me to receive your book so I could share this with my family.
