Summary
"One of the most remarkable episodes of WWII was the Nazi attempt to forge currency and trigger the economic collapse of the Allies ... In this ... memoir, the sole surviving Czech counterfeiter Adolf Burger describes his wartime experiences, including the murder of his wife Gizela in Auschwitz and his time as a prisoner in four concentration camps. He was working as a counterfeiter until his liberation from the Ebensee camp on 5 May 1945 and was present at Toplitzee Lake on July 5th 2000 when thousands of forged notes were brought to the surface. Supported by hitherto unseen documentation and photographs that Burger took of his fellow prisoners after the war, this is a shocking account which sheds fresh light on the calculated barbarity of the Nazi war machine"--Publisher's description
