    Overview

    Summary
    "Before Germany was engulfed by Nazi dictatorship, it was a constitutional republic. And just before Dachau Concentration Camp became a site of Nazi genocide, it was a state detention center for political prisoners, subject to police authority and due process. The camp began its irrevocable transformation from one to the other following the execution of four Jewish detainees in the spring of 1933. Timothy W. Ryback's ... historical narrative focuses on those first victims of the Holocaust and the investigation that followed, as [German prosecutor Josef] Hartinger sought to expose these earliest cases of state-condoned atrocity"--Dust jacket flap.
