In an absurd belief that Jews were a threat to the German people, the Nazis planned to seek out and kill every Jewish man, woman, and child living in Europe. How had such a belief arisen? How was the plan developed and put into action? What was the experience of people in the ghettos and extermination camps? What happened in the end, and how is the Holocaust remembered? This book shows events from the points of view of German perpetrators and onlookers and of Jewish survivors.
