First Polish edition of Simonov's report on the Red Army's discovery of the Nazi death camp at Majdanek. With 11 reproductions of the famous images, taken after the liberation, of the crematories, the piles of shoes and the partly cremated corps in uncovered mass grave. The Majdanek concentration and extermination camp was established on Heinrich Himmler's order and operated from October 1, 1941, until it was liberated by the Soviet Army on July 22, 1944. It is known to be the best preserved Nazi concentration camp of the Holocaust, as the Germans did not have enough time to destroy the evidences of their crimes, thus "many of the symbols of the Holocaust have their beginning here". Konstantin Simonov (1915-1979) was a Soviet author and wartime correspondent of the official organ of the Soviet Ministry of Defence "Krasnaya Zvezda" thus the eyewitness and chronicler of the liberation of the Majdanek death camp.
