Product Description

Amazon Review

The almost unbelievable story of the Holocaust, told by the authoritative Martin Gilbert, is augmented by first-hand accounts and numerous poignant illustrations. Owing much to "those who have assembled the basic documentation", his text is easy to follow and matter-of-fact, allowing the horror of the events to speak for themselves. Gilbert's chronological narrative captures, in a tragically compelling way, the dark progress of the gathering evil--from a background of "century after century" of anti-Semitic persecution, to the Nuremberg Laws and to the death camps. Never Again powerfully counteracts the dehumanising nature of Nazi extermination. The statistics "represent real people", hence names are put to faces in photographs and the stories of individuals (some now household names) are told. Ending with coverage of survivors' post-war lives and the war crimes trials that have continued practically into the new century, the book gives past events a closer reality. Peppered with "acts of individual and collective bravery", Never Again is also a reminder that hope was never extinguished. One of the first German books on the Holocaust stated that "Only if we come to terms with it and understand the lessons of those years, can we free ourselves of the legacy of Hitlerite barbarism". Completed by an extensive bibliography and separate indices of people and places, Never Again makes a superbly lucid and accessible contribution towards creating and maintaining that understanding. --Karen Tiley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Martin Gilbert writes of the richness and continuity of Jewish life before 1933; the spread of Nazism in Germany and its victims; refugee havens, and the contribution of refugees to the countries that took them in; the 10,000 Kinderstansporte youngsters who were given safe haven in Britain; German military conquests and the further spread of Nazism, starting with Poland, ending with Italy, Greece and Hungary; life and death in the ghettos; and the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941.

Through the eight chapters, Martin Gilbert describes the mass murder, the witnesses, perpetrators and escapees; the resistance, and the Warsaw ghetto revolts; death in the camps such as Auschwitz, and individual acts of defiance and heroism, those who were betrayed, and the survivors. He relates the stories of the ‘Righteous Gentiles’ who risked their lives to save the Jews.

He describes the death marches, the survivors of the camps, the liberation of the Jews and the aftermath; the war crimes trials from Nuremberg to Eichman. Finally, he addresses the questions that are still being asked about the Holocaust today.

Martin Gilbert has produced a truly superb account of the Holocaust. The book takes the reader through the history of European Jewry,the events leading up to the Holocaust,the rise of anti-Semitism, the ghettos, deportations and death camps which have become synonymous with the Holocaust. The narrative describing the events is vividly brought to life by the personal accounts and recollections of those caught up in various aspects of the Holocaust:a Jew saved by Oskar Schindler, a survivor of Auschwitz and a liberating British soldier. Never Again is comprehensive and thoroughly researched and is an enlightning book on one of mankind's greatest tradgedies.

Format: Hardcover
This book is very well set out and covers all aspects of the Holocaust, even areas I had not previously considered. For me there was not enough depth but a complete overview of the subject and having read many books about various aspects of the Holocaust I found this a little frustrating. The first hand evidence and its presentation enhance the book. I would thoroughly recommend this book to someone initially researching the subject but not if you are well read on the subject.

This book is a superb introduction to the Holocaust, well set out in sections with appropriate photos and maps. It would be an excellent introduction for a student who knows little of these events. If after reading this you want to know more detail, move on to Martin Gilbert's "The Holocaust", his massive and unequalled tome about those horrific times. It is unlikely that any other book will supplant his book as the best source for these events.The Holocaust
