Wachsmann undertakes a superb monumental examination of the German konzentrationslager system surveying the development of the camps from their earliest iterations through to the final days in which the atrocity and slaughter of the camps became unrivalled The scope of Wachsmann s work is limited to concentration camps specifically rather than extermination camps a differentiation I had not previously appreciated To be sure people were exterminated purposefully in many of these concentration camps but that was not their primary or initial aim though that is of course of little comfort to any of those who suffered within the confines of these camps This means some of the worst camps under the Nazi regime such as Treblinka or Birkenau are not given any detailed examination in the book though they are sometimes referenced in passing Wachsmann uses a range of sources to paint a vivid but ultimately grim depiction of the horror of the KL system using official documents Reich era memoirs and letters of guards and other Nazi figures contemporaneous newspaper reports from Germany and abroad the post war testimonies of Nazi figures the written records of those who experienced the horrors of the KL system first hand whether they survived or not such as Primo Levi Wachsmann has throughout this book masterfully detailed the ways in which categorisation of prisoners served not only to signal to the SS personnel which prisoners may be particularly deserving of their wrath but also served to signal to prisoners the differences between themselves This meant asocials and mostly petty criminals adorned with green triangles received little to no sympathy from other inmates This focus on differences between inmates saw hierarchies formed within camp populations and also helped to ensure inmates would not unite against the guards If you have only a passing interest perhaps this will be too detailed for you though I certainly would urge anyone who is interested in the topic in anything but the most fleeting manner to read this if they get the chance Particular highlights or parts I found especially interesting of the book included Wachsmann s in depth discussions of the vicious anti Semitism of Hitler s Germany discussing not only their imprisonment and specific targeting within the KL system but also the widespread and often petty restrictions placed upon German Jews in the early years of the Third Reich such as prohibiting Jews from owning pets The exploration of the early tensions between the justice system and the regular prison system and how legal resistance to the KL system was eroded over time As an aside this was also something we examined in jurisprudence at law school particularly in the writings of Third Reich jurist Carl Schmitt and his view of the legitimate authority of the State and what he called the state of exception This was also contrasted with the writings of Hannah Arendt and Giorgio Agamben Wachsmann discussed very well the career paths and backgrounds of many leading KL and Nazi figures describing the familiar path that many of these young men were hapless disillusioned and cryng out for a sense of belonging something that the system reinforced and thrived upon toxic masculinity Further throughout the book Wachsmann continues to expertly describe the building cruelty violence and barbarity of the KL system and the Nazi regime broadly describing the process as cumulative radicalisation I think this is particularly important in light of the common cry against the slippery slope argument when one expresses concerns about political dehumanisation of other groups or increasing authoritarianism etc horrific regimes and events rarely start out in their most radical or violent iteration it is often a step by step process that becomes extreme over time The Nazi regime s clashes with and repression of Christian churches and their particular targeting of Jehovah s witnesses largely due to their status as conscientious objectors and whose clothes were adorned with a purple triangle in the camps Obviously however this repression and violence still paled in comparison to the murderous fury the Third Reich reserved for Jews I really enjoyed perhaps that is the wrong word Wachsmann s examination of the treatment of homosexual prisoners within the KL system and how these men were given particularly harsh treatment castrated and were also freuently harassed vilified and isolated by other inmates Another one of the tragedies of the end of WWII which I discovered upon my visiting Germany in 2015 was that homosexual prisoners were left in concentration camps after the liberation of other groups Additionally the Memorial to the Homosexuals Persecuted Under Nazism in the park across the road from the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin was only opened in 2008 Similarly the Memorial to the Sinti and Roma Victims of National Socialism was also not opened in Berlin until 2012 Something that managed to make me chuckle in amongst many of the grim things recounted in this book was the story of Hans Beimler Beimler a communist and political opponent of the Nazi regime was first imprisoned in Dachau in 1933 Faced with an ultimatum from the SS troops to either kill himself after being shown how to tie a noose with bedsheets or to be killed upon the guards return Beimler managed to escape Dachau and Germany altogether From Czechoslovakia he sent the SS guards at Dachau a postcard telling them to kiss my assWachsmann also effectively challenges the view of the Nazi regime as an efficient business savy regime He examines the calamitous Nazi forays into manufacture such as the Sachsenhausen brickworks and reveals projects that often seemed directionless with plenty of bureaucratic waste and dramatic changes embarked upon on a whim Similarly Wachsmann discusses the impact of private businesses in Germany that exploited slave labour from KL prisoners and the perverse way in which this exploitation sometimes helped save prisoners from death in the camps but largely only where one engaged in technicalworkshop manufacturing hard labour in the fields or in construction resulted in an increased rate of deaths by both execution and exhaustion The book s exploration of the Nazi campaign of extermination is also incredibly interesting Wachsmann recalls how Action14f13 the euthanasia campaign initially used against the disabled and those in sanitariums was eventually expanded to concentration camp detainees between 1941 and 1942 claiming the lives of 6500 detainees He highlights how this campaign was particularly brutal against Jewish and homosexual prisoners In March 1942 this policy was curtailed with instructions insiting that only those permanently disabled or those unable to work permanently would be sent to their deaths largely in light of Himmler s recent insistence that the KL system maker a larger economic contribution to the German war efforts Wachsmann insists however that this curtailment of the extermination program within Germany was really about the refocus of the organisation and doctors involved with the Holocaust with many involved parties relocating to outside German borders to the death camps of Eastern Europe Wachsmann also discusses how the termination of this project evolves into another with similar aims and also details how the mass extermination of prisoners virtually paid for itself via the post mortem seizure of valuables and gold teeth fillings which were then sold off And finally a figure which has stuck in my mind ever since I read it in line with this brilliant YouTube video Between October and December 1941 an estimated 300000 500000 Soviet prisoners of war died each month in Nazi camps largely as a result of Hitler s deep hatred of Soviets for being Slavic for being Jewish and for being Bolsheviks the latter two often being combined I cannot recommend this book highly enough though it is of course with a heavy heart Monumental
