A concise history of the Holocaust, covering all the major topics and issues important to that history - the first to be written by a German (non-Jewish) scholar of the younger generation. The History of the Holocaust keeps being written and rewritten in ever greater detail, but almost always by Jewish writers and historians. Wolfgang Benz's book makes an important contribution by bringing German perspectives to that terrible event. His goal is to provide and analyse all the incontrovertible facts and political decisions that led to the dehumanisation and systematic murder of millions of Jews and other ethnic minorities during the Nazi regime. He details the laws, the events, the individuals, and the decisions from 1933 to 1945. The book concludes with a discussion of what the German people really knew. A masterpiece of historical compression, this book is a powerful introduction to the history of the Holocaust.
Wolfgang Benz is professor of antisemitism research at the Technical University of Berlin. He has written numerous studies on the history of the Jews during the Third Reich.
