One of the earliest eyewitness reports about the Nazi genocide of Jews underway in Poland. The Lublin camp, known as Majdanek, was constructed in 1941 as a forced labor camp. By the fall of 1942, with the so-called "final solution" being implemented, the camp became a mechanized mass-murder operation. Simonov, a Soviet poet and playwright, accompanied the Red Army as a war correspondent when they liberated the camp in 1944.
