The album, richly illustrated with archive photographs, includes texts devoted among others to medical assistance provided to former prisoners of Auschwitz, burial of corpses of the victims, help given by the inhabitants of Oświęcim and nearby villages to liberated prisoners, the works of the Soviet and Polish commission investigating German crimes in the premises of the former camp. One of the chapters is also devoted to the history of Soviet camps for German POWs, established in the autumn of 1945 in the former camp area.
