This is his record, as a dedicated doctor maintaining hospitals in the camps in which he worked, of everyday life in German prison camps. He recounts his fights to obtain essential medical equipment and supplies from the German authorities. He shows the humane instinct often put into practice by some German camp authorities, and depicts equally vividly the brutality of others." - from dust-jacket blurb.
