Description

This landmark work answers two of the most fundamental questions in history: how and why did the Holocaust happen?

Laurence Rees has spent 25 years meeting survivors and perpetrators of the Third Reich and the Holocaust. Now, in his magnum opus, he combines largely unpublished testimony with the latest academic research to create the first accessible and authoritative account of the Holocaust in over three decades. Rees argues that whilst hatred of the Jews was always at the epicentre of Nazi thinking - and the Holocaust was the most appalling crime in history - what happened cannot be fully understood without considering the murder of the Jews alongside other Nazi plans to kill millions of non-Jews as well. He also reveals the inner machinations of the Nazi state and shows how there was no single decision to start the Holocaust; instead, a series of escalations cumulatively created the horror.

Through a chronological, intensely gripping narrative featuring the latest historical research and enthralling eyewitness testimony, this is the compelling story of humanity's lowest point.

Just shocked beyond belief

Must read for any history buff. The excruciating details in this book are distressing to comprehend.

Excellent, balanced view of a book

Would you consider the audio edition of The Holocaust to be better than the print version?

Yes

What did you like best about this story?

That it touches on all of the Holocaust, not one work, or death camp. It provides the links between the perpetrators and their actions, but totally avoids sensationalising the history

Have you listened to any of Mr Jonathan Keeble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but he was excellent. Very clear, and seemed to have a tone that was respectful and sympathetic of the subject matter.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No
