Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

50 years after the liberation of the death camps in Nazi Germany, the former project director of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, and current director of its Research Institute, compiles a fascinating collection of firsthand accounts of the Holocaust.

From the first boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany in 1933 to testimony at the Nuremberg Trials in 1946, this illustrated volume includes survivor testimonies, letters, government documents, newspaper reports, diary entries and other firsthand materials, as well as Holocaust scholar Michael Berenbaum's insightful commentary putting the materials into context. The book's chronologically organized documentary approach provides a unique perspective on this much-published subject, and drawing on the most current research in the field of Holocaust studies, offers readers an unforgettable and engrossing history of the Nazis' largely successful effort to eradicate the Jews and other "undesirables" of Europe.

Book News Annotation:

Compiles letters, diary entries, testimony from survivors, government documents, newspaper reports, and other sources to trace the development of the Nazi dehumanization program from the first boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany in 1933 to the Nuremberg Trials in 1946. Includes a few photographs from the period. No subject index.
