In 1944, members of the Sonderkommando—the “special squads,” composed almost exclusively of Jewish prisoners, who ensured the smooth operation of the gas chambers and had firsthand knowledge of the extermination process—buried on the grounds of Auschwitz-Birkenau a series of remarkable eyewitness accounts of Nazi genocide. This careful and penetrating study examines anew these "Scrolls of Auschwitz,” which were gradually recovered, in damaged and fragmentary form, in the years following the camp’s liberation.

It is practically impossible to imagine researching the numerous socio-political conjunctures in the societies of Central and Southeastern Europe, their cultures, historical heritage and politics in the 20th century without scientific study of that which is often called totalitarianism. While the concept of totalitarianism was declared dead several times during the Cold War and afterwards, it nonetheless remains present in numerous theoretical and conceptual reflections on societies and their development.
