Summary "A History of the Holocaust is a detailed account of what happened across Europe during the Holocaust, with balanced coverage of each country. A History of the Holocaust is intended as a textbook, not a philosophical interpretation of the Holocaust. Written in a highly accessible style, it is addressed to students in the hope that they will be inspired to read more, to question and become actively involved in the problems of our world."--BOOK JACKET
