Publisher's summary

In examining one of the defining events of the twentieth century, Doris L. Bergen situates the Holocaust in its historical, political, social, cultural, and military contexts. Unlike many other treatments of the Holocaust, this revised, third edition discusses not only the persecution of the Jews, but also other segments of society victimized by the Nazis: Roma, homosexuals, Poles, Soviet POWs, the disabled, and other groups deemed undesirable. In clear and eloquent prose, Bergen explores the two interconnected goals that drove the Nazi German program of conquest and genocide - purification of the so-called Aryan race and expansion of its living space - and discusses how these goals affected the course of World War II. Including firsthand accounts from perpetrators, victims, and eyewitnesses, her book is immediate and human.

Critic reviews

"A book that will likely be required reading in college-level courses for years to come.... A detailed overview of the Holocaust." ( History in Review)
"This succinct book is remarkably comprehensive, making it unusually accessible to nonexperts. Highly recommended." ( CHOICE)
"This is a book that will find its place on the bookshelves of most Holocaust scholars and should be included in any Holocaust library." ( Jewish Book World)
