The A to Z of the Holocaust

The A to Z of the Holocaust Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the aging of the survivors of the Holocaust, it is becoming increasingly vital that references dealing with this massively important event be made available. The attempted extermination of the Jewish Race_as well as the murders of millions of other victims the Nazis deemed _inferior__must not be forgotten. The intention of this A to Z of the Holocaust is to focus on the unprecedented nature of the German assault on the Jews. Its purpose, therefore, is to provide the reader with the facts of the Holocaust with an emphasis on the central role Jews played in the Nazi genocide. The introductory essay provides the reader with an historical overview of the Holocaust, and is followed by individual entries on the subject. An extensive bibliography and chronology further supplement the usefulness of this volume. This book is intended to be an easy-to-use reference tool for both the history scholar and student.

Book News Annotation:

This is a revised reprint of Historical Dictionary of the Holocaust (1999). Fischel (history, Millersville U., Pennsylvania) provides a chronology, a substantial introductory essay, and an extensive bibliography to accompany his selection of entries, which are arranged alphabetically. Defining and explaining names, places, terms, and events, the entries range from a paragraph to several pages and are thoroughly cross referenced.
