The History of the Jews of Europe During the Second World War By Martin Gilbert (959 Pages)Publisher: Holt, 1986
A comprehensive history of the Holocaust, stressing the human aspect, and telling the story of the deliberate murder of six million men, women and children through the words and experiences both of the murderers and of their victims. The first eighty-three pages examine the origins of the Holocaust and the imposition of Nazism in Germany. The book goes on to describe the steady spread of Nazi rule and the evolution of mass murder country by country, as the German armies extended their conquests from the Atlantic Ocean to the Caucasus. Among the sources on which Gilbert has drawn are the voluminous records of both the Nuremberg trials and the Eichmann trial, where many hundreds of survivors gave eyewitness testimony. The voice of the survivors is present throughout these pages, as are the words of those who were murdered but who managed to write down something of their experiences and fate even as that fate was being decided. Gilbert makes use of diaries that survived, many of then hidden by their authors, some of whom were later murdered. The story of Jewish resistance, and of individual acts of courage and defiance, is an important and integral part of this book.
