The title of this book is just perfect. By then, Arthur had ended up in Auschwitz, in May 1943.

The title of this book is just perfect. Spectator in Hell is the story of Arthur Dodd, an English soldier imprisoned in the Monowitz section of Auschwitz for nearly two years. Arthur didn't really have to join the army, in 1938 he had a bad accident, bad enough to consider amputating his foot. With surgery and painful physiotherapy he was eventually able to join the army as a vehicle driver and mechanic. Rather than tell all of the story, let me just say that God or somebody or something must have been watching over Arthur. He faced death so many times and through it all he spent much of his time reading his Bible.

Spectator in Hell tells the true story of Arthur Dodd who was a british soldier, captured . This book describes a British POW's life in Auschwitz. It is written in a matter of fact style and does not use hyperbole or exaggeration. I think this makes it all the more striking.

Spectator in Hell tells the true story of Arthur Dodd who was a british soldier, captured and taken to Monowitz, a little talked about part of Auschwitz. While some of the content is about witnessing the horrific treatment of Jews, it's largely about the life of Arthur bef I frequently see a thought or meme online that states that comparing abuse can't be done. I fully and firmly believe that it's the truth. A person may have suffered one trauma while another suffered through repeated instances.

The title of this book is just perfect. Spectator in Hell is the story of Arthur Dodd, an English soldier imprisoned in the Monowitz section of Auschwitz for nearly two years. Arthur didn't really have to join the army, in 1938 he had a bad accident, bad enough to consider amputating his foot. With surgery and painful physiotherapy he was eventually able to join the army as a vehicle driver and mechanic. Arthur finally saw active duty in North Africa where he was taken prisoner by the Germans in 1942. His unit was spoken to by General Erwin Rommel the "desert fox." By then, Arthur had ended up in Auschwitz, in May 1943. Rather than tell all of the story, let me just say that God or somebody or something must have been watching over Arthur. He faced death so many times and through it all he spent much of his time reading his Bible. His faith was very strong and gave him the strength to go on even in spite of being a Spectator in Hell. This book also flies in the face of people who say there weren't any English POW soldiers in Auschwitz. This is the second book I have read by one of these soldiers and there are a few other books written by other soldiers from Arthurs unit. I highly recommend this book, an excellent read and an important part of history.

The man in the book is from my home town which made this nightmare very personal .It is written with great honesty a personal struggle to survive the inhumane treatment by monsters .Hopefully this type of bestiality will never again darken any ones lives .

For some time it was a common misconception that no British Prisoners Of War were imprisoned in Auschwitz.
It was largely understood that the vast majority of prisoners at Auschwitz-Birkenau were innocent Jews with the remainder consisting of political prisoners, gypsies etc..
Whilst this is largely true, Arthur Dodd was in fact one of a number of British soldiers actually incarcerated there.
Here he outlines his own personal experiences and the suffering that he witnessed with his own eyes. The wholesale, indiscriminate massacres of Jews, women and children. Some of the events described are heart-breaking.
For some time Arthur Dodd kept his experiences to himself. When he initially spoke of them publicly, no-one really wanted to hear.
This book is a must read.
