Product Overview

For undergraduate courses on the Holocaust and Hitler and Nazi Germany. Told with scrupulous attention to detail and accuracy, this text examines the causes and events of the Holocaust, providing important background information on Jewish life in Europe, the functions of the hierarchy within the Nazi government, and the psychological foundations of prejudice. Unlike other texts on the subject, "A History of the Holocaust " tries to give students an idea of just who the victims of the Holocaust were. In fact, the author tells this story from a unique point-of-view, having experienced Nazi Germany as a child. This book seeks to explain the sequence of events that led up to what we now refer to as the Holocaust or "Shoah." This new edition reflects the latest scholarship, contains an updated bibliography, and introduces a powerful new feature: Voices---the testimonies of five individuals who shared their experiences of the Holocaust with author Rita Steinhardt Botwinick.
