He resisted, faking documents for prisoners and smuggling photos to the outside world. When the war ended, he refused orders to destroy his records. Many of the people that appeared in Brasse's photos perished, but he wouldn't discard the memories of who they were. A hauntingly true story of a man who made sure the world couldn't turn a blind eye to the Holocaust, The Auschwitz Photographer honors Wilhelm Brasse, the photographer who immortalized the horrific atrocities we should, and must, never forget"-- ‡cProvided by publisher.
