Book Description

1 Dec 1999
These 213 documents on the theory, planning, and execution of, and reaction and resistance to, the Nazi plan to exterminate European Jews date from the 1920s through the closing days of World War II, and focus on the experience of eastern Europe. The crystallisation of the principles of Nazi anti-Semitism, the policies of the Third Reich toward the Jews, the period of segregation and enclosed ghettos, and the stages through which the 'final solution' were implemented are some of the topics covered. Other documents shed light on Jewish public activities and the organisation of the Underground and Jewish self-defence. Many of the documents of Jewish origin were not published previously. This comprehensive collection is essential for understanding the history of the Holocaust. Yitzhak Arad has written numerous books including "The Pictorial History of the Holocaust". Yisrael Gutman is a coeditor of Anatomy of the Auschwitz Death Camp. Abraham Margaliot taught at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Introducer Steven T. Katz is a professor of religion and the director of the Centre for Judaic Studies at Boston University.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review 18 Mar 2008
By Stephen Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
An interesting book. The first section describes the gradual tightening of legal restrictions on the Jewish people of Germany. Each decree gradually stripping another layer of civil protection by defining them as second class citizens. The final legal step was to define what a Jew was, and how they no longer qualified even as a second class citizen.

The second part of the book tells the story of the same process in Poland. Each step was carefully calculated as part of the final solution of the "Jewish problem." Interesting is Heydrichs order in 1939 where it is obvious that extermination was the final goal. Also interesting, at least for me, was how clearly Hitler considered Jews and Communists one and the same. Rather, you could be a communist without being a Jew, but all communists took orders from the international Jewish conspiracy.

The final section describes the events in the Soviet Union where the Holocaust operated without any restraints. This book is about the destruction of the Jewish population so you will not find any reference to the deaths of millions of Poles, Ukranians, etc.

An interesting book. If you have minimal knowledge of the Holocaust this would give the reader a starting point. Please remember this not going to read like a novel although in its own way it is a narrative. A narrative of the destruction of the Jewish people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 19 April 2012
By Dons Chicago - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was one of several books used in a History of the Holocaust college course I recently took. I thought it was a great supplement to the main reading. Filled with original documents, journal entries and memos written throughout Hitlers reign, even a couple letters written by Hitler himself (he did not put much in writing...). This book really helped round out the reading for my course.
