Offered for sale is this rare original book, signed by a member of the SS-Sonderkommando 4a, Kurt Werner. Members of the Sonderkommandos were often sent to Buchenwald concentration camp to receive training and Kurt Werner must have used this book during his stay at the camp. It has a rubber stamp from KL Buchenwald and his signature in the front. We do not know what rank he had and what happend to him adfter the war, if he survived but below is a testimony that he gave, describing the horror at Babi Yar near Kiev, Russia where he was actively involved in the killing of Jews:

Testimony of Kurt Werner, member of the Sonderkommando 4a: 
"The whole command, except one guard, marched out at around 6 a.m. for the shootings during those days. I myself sat in a lorry. Everyone available had to join. We then drove northwards for around 20 minutes. We stopped on a paved road which ended in open terrain. Countless Jews were assembled there, and a place was established where the Jews had to put down their clothing and baggage. After 1 km I saw a large, natural ravine. The terrain was sandy. The ravine was around 10 m deep, 400 m long, 80 m wide at the top, and around 10 m wide at the bottom. Soon after my arrival at the execution site I was ordered to the bottom of the ravine, together with other comrades. After a short time the first Jews were brought to us via the slopes of the ravine. The Jews had to lay face down at the edge of the ravine. Three groups of marksmen were in the pit, around 12 marksmen. Jews were constantly brought from above to these groups of marksmen. The Jews following had to lie down on the corpses of the Jews who had already been shot. The marksmen stood behind the Jews and killed them by shots in the neck. Today I still remember the horror of the Jews who saw the corpses in the pit. Many Jews were shocked, and screamed. One cannot imagine the nervous strain involved in carrying out this dirty job in the pit. It was horrible...
The whole morning I had to stay in the ravine. There I was ordered to shoot again and again for a while, and then I was busy filling mp magazines with ammunition. During this time other comrades were detailed for shooting. At noon we were allowed to leave the ravine, and in the afternoon together with others comrades I had to bring the Jews towards the pit. During this time other comrades carried out the shooting in the pit. We brought the Jews to the border of the pit; from there they ran down the slopes themselves. On this day the shooting went on until approximately 5 or 6 p.m. Then we were ordered back to our quarters. That evening alcohol was handed out again."
