The book is a monographic study of the history of the Sonderkommando in Auschwitz, special labor detail made up of prisoners  who were forced to burn corpses in the camp’s crematorium.
Based on the accounts of survivors and on the analysis of a hundred archival documents, the publication is a reconstruction of the events, from 1940, when the first crematorium furnace in Auschwitz Main Camp was put into operation, to 1945, when camp was evacuated and approximately 100 Sonderkommando members were led in the march of death.

Publication includes documents, most of which were published for first time. Monography proves that, contrary to conventional opinion and despite the dectruction of traces of the Nazi crimes, there is a large number of valuable historical sources.

The author presents to a reader a tragic history of eyewitnesses of crimes, their life and work in the crematorium site, and their extremely tragic situation which they faced every day. Documents annotated with a historical commentary make up the most complete analysis of the Sonderkommando history. There were about 1,800–2,000 prisoners forced to work in the Sonderkommando during the camp’s operation. Approximately 50–60 of them survived.
