The nationwide Socialist focus camp of Stutthof, now not faraway from Danzig (West Prussia), hasn't ever been the topic of clinical research via western historians. In Poland there exists really an intensive physique of literature at the topic, which needs to, although, be taken care of with warning, since it is seriously stimulated by way of Soviet-Communist and Polish-nationalistic ideology. in line with this literature, Stutthof turned a ‘makeshift’ extermination camp in the framework of the execution of the so-called ‘Final resolution of the Jewish Question’ in 1944.

Jürgen Graf and Carlo Mattogno have subjected this view of Stutthof to serious exam in line with Polish literature and files positioned in Russian, Polish, and Dutch documents, paying specific awareness to mass transports to and from Stutthof in 1944. This examine led the authors to very convinced conclusions as to the functionality of the camp, differing dramatically from these expressed within the general literature: not just do Graf and Mattogno end up that the Stutthof camp didn't function a ‘makeshift’ extermination camp—the room claimed to were used as a homicidal gasoline chamber used to be by no means whatever yet a delousing chamber. This e-book additionally sheds mild at the query of what occurred to a couple of the prisoners who have been despatched to Auschwitz yet have been by no means registered in that camp: after being a lot shuffled approximately and ignored, they ended up in Stutthof.

The current quantity, now in its 3rd version, is a milestone of analysis, which no historian with any declare to seriousness can come up with the money for to disregard.
