Death is my trade, by Robert Merle. This book immerses us in the heart of the life of one of the biggest nazi criminals in history. He is the Commander of the notorious concentration camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland, Rudolf Höss. One understands his motivations, his fanaticism, reasoning that might be described as automatic. Beyond the circumstances, and the means which have been put at its disposal, it is especially his perfectionist spirit, and the illusion to serve a good cause, that have made him one of the most hated monsters in the history of humanity. The or we see human beings, he saw figures, la or we see the cruelty, he saw a way to solve a problem. Its mission was to go as soon as possible in the mass murder of, still further, still more deaths, to such point that he even had no qualms to move down a mind blowing cold blood that his activities cost the lives of 2.5 million people, though the figure has could make controversy during the decades after the defeat of the Third Reich It remains hard to imagine.
