Sonderkommando Auschwitz III: They Wept Crocodile Tears. A Critical Analysis of Late Witness Testimonies
In 1995, under the title We Wept without Tears, Yad-Vashem Historian Gideon Greif published a collection of interviews he had recently conducted with former Auschwitz inmates who claimed to have been members of the “Sonderkommando”. This book critically reviews the statements made by these inmates (Josef Sackar, Abraham and Szlama Dragon, Jaakov Gabai, Shaul Chasan and Leon Cohen). In addition, the memoirs published in the 1990s and early 2000s by Shlomo Venezia and of a number of Greek Jews, all of whom claimed to have been members of the “Sonderkommando,” are being critically reviewed.
