Summary"In this illustrated survey [Martin Gilbert] describes Jewish life in Europe before the Holocaust, the rise of Nazism in Germany, the search for safe havens after 1933, and the work of those who helped that search. He documents the spread of German conquests, the expulsion of whole Jewish communities, the establishment of ghettos, the deportations, and mass murder. He looks at individual acts of defiance, at escape, and at the revolts in the ghettos and death camps. He writes of the fate of slave labourers, and of those sent on death marches. He also portrays the Jewish determination to survive, and strength of spirit, amid relentless horror." —Book jacket
