A History of the Holocaust

A History of the Holocaust Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Rather than developing some grand philosophy of history, Friedman (Holocaust and Judaic studies, Youngstown State U.) sets out the basic facts of the Nazi attempts to exterminate Jews for students, lay readers, and teachers who may not have a clear understanding of the story. Among his topics are the history of persecution of Jews in Europe and Russia, the nature and rise of Nazism, persecution in various places ruled by Nazis and during various periods of the Reich, the roles of Britain and the US, the extermination camps, and punishing the guilty. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

A History of the Holocaust is a detailed, factual account of what happened across Europe during the Holocaust, with balanced coverage of each country. The Holocaust was unique within the context of the Second World War because Jews were disproportionately represented among the civilian casualties in that conflict. Over fifty million people died as a result of the application of total war. Twelve per cent of these were Jews. At the time, Jews constituted less than one-quarter of one per cent of the world's population. This book is intended as a textbook, not a philosophical interpretation of the Holocaust. Written in a highly accessible style, it is addressed to students and will inspire them to read more about the subject and to question the problems of the world.
