This TRILOGY that we present to you as a collection of photographs, documents, and artifacts, showing the tragic stories of persecution and holocaust that took place before and during the greatest conflict in the human history of the Second World War.
We believe that this publication is needed especially now when the memory of the cruelty and the true picture of the Second World War are blurred.
While there have been thousands of books written about the Second World War, and in spite of mounds of documentary evidence, testimony, and archival film and photographs, there continues to exist those that deny that the Holocaust actually happened by attempting to further their cause with made-up stories and falsehoods
Norbert Podlesny is a historian, dealer and collector of these rare artifacts, and has been doing so for the past 30 years. Podlesny’s grandfather was a prisoner in the “KL Majdanek” concentration camp and was drawn to this historical topic at a very early age. Over the years, his passion has grown and he wants to share the truth of what happened during the III Reich’s reign of terror. Podlesny has collaborated with many Holocaust museums throughout the world doing research and documenting the truth of what really happened.
