Publisher Comments:

Hitler and the Holocaust is the product of a lifetimes work by one of the worlds foremost authorities on the history of anti-Semitism and modern Jewry. Robert S. Wistrich examines Europes long history of violence against its Jewish populations, looks at the forces that shaped Hitlers belief in a “satanic Jewish power” that must be eradicated, and discusses the process by which Hitler gained power and finalized his plans for mass genocide. He concludes by addressing the abiding legacy of the Holocaust and the lessons that can be drawn from it. Combining a comprehensive picture of one of the most cataclysmic periods in recent history with contemporary scholarly developments and fresh historical inquiry, Hitler and the Holocaust is an indelible contribution to the literature of history.


In "Hitler and the Holocaust, " Wistrich is less concerned with detailing the "what" and "how" of this century's most infamous genocide than he is in answering the seemingly unanswerable: "Why?"

About the Author
