Death Comes in Yellow presents the history of one slave labor camp in order to shed light on all aspects of the slave labor camps established in Poland under German occupation. Hasag-Skarzysko was one of hundreds of camps scattered throughout occupied Poland.

Must read Feb 12, 2005
Impressive book that describes, analyzes and chronicles the Skarzysko-Kamienna Slave Labor Camp. This is a little known place with a unique structure amoung the hundreds of forgotten camps. The author also provides a unique analysis of the economics of this camp and its social structure. The translation is rough in some parts but this book is the best overall book I have read about the camps, their social structure, organization, interations of liberation movements and economics. She also provides a unique insight into why many voluntereed to enter the camp and provides much historical background and the links to other Concentration Camps including Plaszow, the camp where Oskar Schindler was associated.
