The Last Night At Auschwitz: A Novel

Cosmin BAIU

In the autumn of 1944, a young Ancient History professor is embarked on a freight train and, along with thousands of other prisoners, is deported to Auschwitz. He only has a few weeks to escape, until starvation would cloud his judgement, until his body would become too weak to fight.

Will he succeed? The outcome is unexpected and shocking...

Written in the first person, the novel The Last Night at Auschwitz transports the reader into the terrifying atmosphere of this death factory, where the air itself smells of despair, in the intimacy of the thoughts, motivations and dialogues of monsters with a human appearance like Josef Mengele, Rudolf Höss or the criminal Karl Fritzsch.

The main character, Severin Bosch - an Austrian intellectual of Romanian descent, an exponent of Nietzsche's Superman - unwittingly enters this well-organized machine and witnesses heinous crimes, dehumanisation and betrayal, but in just a few days he succeeds in organizing the opposition, becoming the leader of a resistance movement which aims at freeing all prisoners.

Inspired by actual events, well-documented, The Last Night at Auschwitz is a captivating and terrifying historical thriller, a descent into the inferno, which masterfully depicts the blind, mutilating struggle between dehumanized, indoctrinated monsters and their defenceless victims.

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."
