Description:
A commanding and important short history of the Holocaust, its origins, and its legacy.

Before turning to the infernal mechanics of the Holocaust itself, Wistrich begins by exploring the origins of anti-Semitism in Europe, in Germany especially, to explain how that led to the systematic killing of millions of Jews. In the process of relating these events, he provides new and incisive answers to a number of central questions that have emerged over recent years concerning the Shoah: who, inside and outside Nazi Germany, knew that Jews were being murdered; how responsibility for the genocide should be divided between Hitler himself and ordinary Germans; and how historians have tried to make sense of the Holocaust. The book concludes by considering the legacy of Nazi crimes since 1945: the Nuremberg trials, the impact of the Holocaust on Diaspora Jewry, and the rise of neo-Nazism and Holocaust denial. An exemplary account of the horrors that took place in Germany during the 1930s and 1940s, The Holocaust is a powerful and original contribution to the literature of those terrible events.
