    I was really disappointed with this book Granted, this is a hard topic to tackle, simply due to the magnitude of victims, and the extent of brutality however, the author really did not, in my opinion, do justice to his subject Strangely, the author slams every conceivable population for their part in the Holocaust I never thought I d read a book where the pope appearedanti Semitic than Hitler, but so it was The Jewish community also gets a good heaping helping of blame in this book, I was really disappointed with this book Granted, this is a hard topic to tackle, simply due to the magnitude of victims, and the extent of brutality however, the author really did not, in my opinion, do ...

    This is a monumental study of Nazi state and its relationship with the Jews It is written as dispassionately as possible given the topic It reports the facts through diary entries, archives, correspondance and the work of previous historians The sheer volume of effort that has been put to creating this record is almost unfathomable as is the record of atrocities committed by the Nazis There is some attempt to examine motivation but in the end the author admits that the reasons are unknowable This is a monumental study of Nazi state and its relationship with the Jews It is written as dispassionately as possible given the topic It reports the facts throu...

    This book traces the development of the Final Solution and chronicles the deaths of millions of Jews It is, of course, impossible to tell the stories of 6 million individuals in spite of the inclusion of quotations from victims diaries, the scope of this book remains vaguely wide The Holocaust is still a very hard thing for me to comprehend, but this book makes some things clearer Friedlander highlights how quickly many, many Europeans let themselves be convinced that the Jews were vile, in This book traces the development of the Final Solution and chronicles the deaths of millions of Jews It is, of course, impossible to tell the stories of 6 million individuals in spite of the inclusion of quotations from victims diaries, the scope of this book remains vaguely wide The Holocaust is still a very hard thing for me to comprehend, but this book makes some things clearer Friedlander highlights how quickly many, many Europeans let themselves be convinced that the Jews were vile, in spite of ludicrous propaganda e.g The Jews are making us Germans go to war the failure of the good guys Britain and the U.S to stop the genocide and save lives the fact that Jews from different regions did not, generally, view themselves as a united people and how Nazism brought forth vociferous anti Semitism among many Catholics and Lutherans throughout Europe I found the first book I read by Friedlander, on Pope Pius XII, le...
