A SHAEF report which asks a number of questions about the conduct of the war on the Allied side. This report describes the concentration camps that existed inside German controlled Europe from the beginning of the Nazi regime right to the end. It contains details of the camps themselves (and discusses the various types of camp), the camp guards and the Totenkopf Regiments. The main body gives exact details of what was known about the multitude of camps and detention centres towards the end of the war in Europe, and begs the question: if this was known, why was no one made aware of these camps other than the politicians and intelligence agencies? Auschwitz, Dachau, Belsen, Treblinka are, with the other camps, all described. There were thirty camps in Holland, twenty-nine in Norway, and the list for Poland is extremely long and very chilling. This book has information which gives the lie to the reconstructionist historian, and points to the clear fact that holocaust denial is a non-starter. Although not a comforting read, the information is so vital to any study of the Third Reich that it must be on the bookshelf for reference.

It attempted to compile the names, locations and pertinent data of confirmed, reported or alleged detention centres in Axis Europe which came within the elastic definition of the term “Concentration Camp”. The report covers camps in the Baltic States, Belgium, Bulgaria, Channel Islands, Danzig, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Poland, Slovakia and Yugoslavia.
