A powerful academic account which says enough without ghoulishly dwelling on every horrifying sadistic detail of the events covered.I found the second half of the book more compellingly written than the first.Perhaps because it is a summary of a two volume work it does start abruptly,dropping the reader into January 1933 without much about the previous history of antisemitism in Germany and Europe in general.

The wonderful thing about this stupendous book is its humanity. Saul Friedlander puts a human face onto terrible events, and makes them not only extremely moving but unforgettable. This work was very well researched, and individual Jewish voices from different parts of Europe are here able to bear witness, and speak for themselves across the years.

They speak within the framework of Friedlander's very lucid explanation of the cruel policies of persecution which gradually developed across Nazi-dominated Europe between 1933-45. As a Jewish boy, Friedlander himself survived because he was hidden by a French Catholic family. As an eye-opener onto another world, this vivid, enthralling, but heartbreaking book is very highly recommended.

Less we forget. A well written, researched and informative account of what is possibly the worst destruction of human life.
