Abstract
 
Description
The vast amount of serious research work on the Holocaust never reaches the general public and our notions of it are at the mercy of distortion and myth. As a result it is regarded as a horrific drama played out only between executioner Nazis and ghetto Jewish victims - in short, an aberration of history. This book dissolves this stereotype and places the Holocaust where it belongs - at the centre of modern European and world history. If such an event is not to be repeated, it is crucial to understand that genocide is a constant widespread threat to humanity, as witnessed in Cambodia, former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. The book provides a forthright guide to the horrifying meaning of the Holocaust for readers today. - from Amzon
