"An eye-opening synthesis of the whole historiography of the Shoah ... The meat of the book is a brilliant review of vexed issues like Jewish resistance (armed and unarmed), the role of the Judenräte, or Nazi-imposed Jewish Councils, and the plans to rescue Jews by buying their freedom ..." -- Morris Dickstein, New York Times Book Review
"Bauer is the preeminent student of Jewish resistance and rescue efforts ... Bauer's book also reaches beyond issues of rescue, offering a strong introduction to many of the analytic debates on Nazi genocide." -- Paul Breines, Washington Post Book World
"In this original and compelling book Bauer considers all the major issues of Holocaust historiography. Everything Bauer touches he illuminates." -- Michael Berenbaum
