BeschreibungOf one-and-a-half-million photographs related to Nazi concentration camps, only four depict the actual process of mass killing perpetrated at the gas chambers. This book reveals that these photos of Auschwitz, taken clandestinely by one of the Jewish prisoners forced to help carry out the atrocities there, were made as a potent act of resistance.

Lillis recently earned his PhD in French literature from the University of California, Berkeley.
Pressestimmen"Didi-Huberman argues clearly and forcefully that engagement with these photos is necessary and responsible, and that we owe it to the men and women who performed these acts of resistance so that we would see and think." - Donald M. Reid, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill"
