More than 6 million soldiers became POWs in camps operated by Nazi Germany. Western Allies were mostly treated in accordance to the international treaties, while members of the Polish Army and the Red Army were exposed to cruelty, slave labor and murder. Amongst them, the Jewish prisoners suffered the most. This book details the complexity of one of the most brutal chapters of the Holocaust period.
