Publisher Comments:

This new collection of original Holocaust documents and sources brings readers into direct contact with perpetrators and victims. The words of Nazi leaders and common soldiers, SS doctors and European collaborators show how and why they planned and participated in mass murder. Jewish and non-Jewish victims speak of their persecution and resistance. Steve Hochstadt's commentary on each source outlines the historical causes and step-by-step development of the Holocaust, as well as the continuing debates about its significance.
