This book offers a survey of the encounter between the Third Reich and European Jewry. Pointing out the difficulties historians face in interpreting the ever-expanding documentary record, it includes treatment of the role of non-Germans in the Holocaust, consideration of the much-debated nexus between the Holocaust and modernity, and discussion on how 'the Holocaust' developed as a distinct historical topic.
Fully updated, this new third edition incorporates the latest scholarly findings with expanded treatment of gendered aspects of the Holocaust, the Holocaust?s world historical contexts, the long-term history of Jewish-Christian relations, and thinking about the Holocaust?s contemporary relevance, as well as additional documents reflecting recent archival discoveries. Offering a concise narration that appeals to both the intellect and the emotions, the book enables students to gain a real understanding of the events of this catastrophic time.
Including a useful selection of original documents (many never before anthologised in English), a chronology, glossary, and 'who?s who', David Engel?s book will be welcomed by anyone trying to get to grips with this complex and far-reaching subject.
