story of a monster

First of all to be honest I skipped a few chapter when he was telling how other SS officers did not function well and actually hinderhis work and stopped him making things better for his prisoners. I felt sick to hear him sort of praising himself for wanting to make things better for the prisoners. I have read a lot about WW11 and have visited Aushwitz so have seen how 'better' things were. In fact I feel the only time he sounded a bit human were in the letters to his wife and children. The book is interesting partly because you wonder how someone can be a family man and still murder so many.

Simply chilling!

Any additional comments?

Rudolph Hoess was a willing functionary in a system that intended to exterminate an entire ethnic group, but we must never forget that such functionaries require many, many more willing colleagues to complete their despicable task.

The lessons of the Holocaust have not been learnt sadly, so we need to keep revisiting our past so that eventually we learn to cease such barbarism.
