Thirty years before, he had been responsible for liquidating the nearby Jewish ghetto, sending nearly 4,000 Jews to their deaths at Treblinka and 1,600 to slave-labour in the local munitions factories. This shocking acquittal, delivered despite the incriminating eyewitness testimony of survivors, drives Christopher R. Browning's inquiry into the circumstances of survival for three hundred Jews, where the camps, even under dire conditions, were an anomoly in the systematic killing and offered their best chances of survival, edges tanned, dustwrapper: lightly rubbed at tips, near fine in a near fine dustwrapper,
