He details the camp conditions, specific torture done to prisoners, numbers of prisoners killed, and other facts regarding the management of the concentration camp. Also included are photographs of the prisoners and camp, taken by Etkin, as well as a newspaper clipping summarizing the role Zeireis played in the management of Mauthausen.
