The Holocaust Summary

The Holocaust by Chris McNab

The Holocaust remains history's most appalling act of genocide. This Pitkin Guide sensitively explains how the persecution of the Jews by Nazi Germany progressed from policies of racial exclusion through to systematic deportation and execution at camps such as Auschwitz-Birkenau, Sobibor and Treblinka. We also steer the reader through lesser-known aspects of the Holocaust: the role of non-Germans in the murder of Jews; the activities of the Einsatzgruppen; the relationship of ordinary Germans to the persecution; and the Allies' knowledge of what was happening.

Combined with a thorough explanation of the labour and extermination camp system, the guide provides a valuable introduction to the politics, psychology and history of this terrible programme of exploitation and extermination. The title would also be relevant to many schoolchildren studying the Third Reich or the Holocaust.

This guide includes two maps and a list of places to visit and information regarding further resources.
