Commandant of Auschwitz

Commandant of Auschwitz - Rudolf Hoss Difficult book to rate. On the one hand, it's written by a monster who believes his work was just and necessary, even as he throws in the occasional "of course I know better now".

But on the other hand, it's compelling and amazing in the depth of horror he's able to gloss over while asking sympathy for his troubles. It's a must read for anyone wanting to try to understand what makes these Nazi-creatures tick.
