I read this a number of years ago but I remember that it was extremely good. This is a well researched, in-depth look at the horrific treatment of the Jew, the Gypsies, homosexuals, people with disabilities, and any others deemed weak by the Nazis. The systematic destruction of a population throughout Europe and parts of Asia by the maniacs of the Third Reich is still shocking 70 years later. If you want to know more about the Holocaust this is a book for you.

An incredibly informative account of the Holocaust without all of the victimization, guilt, and blame. I learned things about the Holocaust I'd never known before, and now I feel like I understand the time period, the cause of the event, and the people who caused it even more. My teacher was right - this really is one of the best accounts out there.

This book layers many different narratives. For a more 'textbook' kind of book, I had a hard time putting it down. It's an easy read, and lacks any academic jargon. The authors interweave personal narratives with more historical/documentary accounts of the Holocaust, making one take note of both the massive scale, and the intensely personal nature of the crimes.

Incredible findings from many years of intense, cutting edge, shcolarly research. A must read for anyone who has an interest in the Holocaust.

Extremely well researched.

A concise, yet thorough, introduction to all of the major political, social, and historical aspects of the Holocaust.

Excellent comprehensive coverage of the historical details while still giving the victims agency and individuality.
