Summary"Encyclopedia of the Holocaust provides factual, nonsensational material in a single-volume reference on this heinous and terrifying event in modern history. Divided into two sections, the encyclopedia covers the antecedents of the Holocaust, including a history of European Jewry, stressing Jewish achievements and contributions to European culture, as well as the rise of antisemitism and Nazism. The second part contains more than 650 encyclopedic entries on the major subjects related to the Holocaust, including people, cities and countries, camps, resistance, movements, political actions, and outcomes." —Book jacket
