Auschwitz A Doctor's Eyewitness AccountWhen the Nazis invaded Hungary in 1944 they sent virtually the entire Jewish population to Auschwitz A Jew and a medical doctor Dr Miklos Nyiszli “Auschwitz” is the account of a Jewish medical doctor who performed autopsies at the crematoria of Auschwitz at the behest of the infamous Dr Mengele It’s gut wrenching reading One is constantly reminded of the words of another famous Holocaust chronicler Viktor Frankl who said “We who have come back by the aid of many lucky chances or miracles whatever one may choose to call them we know the best of us did not return” That’s a sad fact with which Dr Nyiszli had to live Nyiszli lent his expertise to many despicable acts in the process of surviving and it’s to his credit that he had the courage to write this work He was the only one who could have told much of this story and it’s a story that he felt the world must know even if it meant rehashing the nightmare scenario of his life during the holocaust years even if he was not always to be seen at his most virtuousWhile Nyiszli was a man of science who tried to stick to the objective task of conducting autopsies his results were routinely perverted to support Nazi pseudo science—the pseudo science used by Nazis to justify elimination of the Jews and other despised classes of humanity Nyiszli stayed alive first and foremost because Dr Mengele valued Nyiszli’s expertise and perhaps the credibility that expertise offered to the Nazi’s insane attempts to emulate scienceSometimes by just answering basic scientific uestions Nyiszli was contributing to the advancement of dire atrocities There’s no better example than when Mengele asked Nyiszli how one could obtain a skeleton from a corpse These skeletons displayed deformities and were thus to be sent to the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology Human Heredity and Eugenics to support the absurd assertion that Jews were genetically degrading Of course as Nyiszli points out the disease these two people were afflicted with was no less common among blond haired blue eyed Aryans than it was among the Jewish people At any rate this resulted in two corpses made corpses by force not nature being boiled to remove the skeletons so they could be sent to an institute as pseudo evidenceNyiszli’s forthcomingness is astounding Nyiszli performed many objectionable actions at the behest of Mengele but it’s clear he couldn’t have survived disobeying the Nazi doctor However there were also times when Nyiszli acted on his own in a way that was arguably detestable After Auschwitz was abandoned Nyiszli used his former position and Mengele name dropping to cut in line to get into an encampment essentially a refugee camp so he could get a shower and food for the night when others were left out in the coldI don’t mean to make Nyiszli look evil He did many virtuous things in the process of surviving as well This included sneaking medical supplies from the crematoria infirmary where there was abundance to barracks infirmaries where there was a dire shortage He did his best to save those he could It’s to Nyiszli’s credit that he shows us a complete picture One expects such a book to be distorted when it comes to the author but Nyiszli’s book seems honestThis is an important book as it lets us peer into one of the darkest hours of humanity and gaze upon a terribleness that would have been lost to posterity The book gives a chilling account of what it must have been like to be in the gas chambers told by someone who saw the aftermath in person Nyiszli saw the piles of bodies reaching to the ceiling—dog piles in which the weakest were trapped on the bottom as the strongest tried to climb over women and children to get a gulp of good air Another proof of Frankl’s thesis Nyiszli also describes how one little girl in a freak occurrence managed to survive the chambers owing to an air pocket only to have the SS finish the execution by cruder meansI think everybody should read this book but I’ll offer a warning that it’s not for the faint of heart One has to keep righteous rage in check to just get through the book However to ignore this wicked moment in history is to fail to see the traps humanity is capable of falling into through simple refusal to do the right thing or a willingness to try to feel better about oneself by casting aspersions on those with slightly different physical features
