Thanks for the recommendation. I'm at the top of a tall stack of reading right now, but I'll be sure to get it.

Rudolf Höß, hanged facing Auschwitz, the camp he commanded, in April 1947. He admitted to 1.1 to 1.5 million murders carried out under his command. Eichmann told him the number was 2.5 million.

If you haven’t and can get it read Lipstadt’s Eichmann in Jerusalem afterwards. It rounds things out nicely.
A joke going around Moscow during The Great Terror:

The NKVD knocks on a door.
The inhabitants ask who it is.
“NKVD.”

I just brought the Stangneth book home from the library. I see that it's a translation. I'll start reading it, but since the original is in a language I can read, I'll try to order it as well. At my age, I need to keep up my languages, and this is the best way to do it.

I believe that this shows a key point in WWII:

I am pretty sure that the footage is authentic because it is professional quality without odd shadows.
