It serves as an indispensable guide for anyone seeking to add another layer to their understanding of the Holocaust by visiting these important sites for themselves.
Including not only the notorious concentration and death camps, such as Auschwitz and Ravensbr ck, but also lesser known examples, such as Sered in Slovakia, The Holocaust Sites of Europe incorporates detailed descriptions of massacre sites, ghettos, Euthanasia centers and Roma and Sinti sites that witnessed similar crimes.
