Из книги: Павел Полян. Жизнь и смерть в аушвицком аду: летописцы из еврейской «зондеркоммандо» и их свитки. М.: АСТ, 2018. С. 126–136

In the history of the World War II and the Holocaust, the question of the “sonderkom-me” is one of the most painful: in death camps such units consisted of Jewish pris-oners  who  had  to  drive  doomed  fellow  consanguineous  into  gas  chambers,  and  then  handle the corpses. Th  e survivors testifi ed about the Nazi atrocities but has repeatedly been accused of voluntary collaboration with the enemy. Th  e author provides a number of documentary evidence that allows us to take a broader look at the phenomenon itself and avoid personal attacks and biased assessments.
