Summary"First published under the title The Yellow Star, this is a revised and enlarged edition of the book, with a new introduction by Allan Gould... This collection, gathered together by a German journalist, shows in vivid and painful detail the truth about the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Persecution takes on new meaning for the reader, who witnesses the terror in Hitler's pre-war Germany, the misery of the Polish ghettos, the wholesale shootings in the Soviet Union, the deportations from all countries of occupied Europe, the massacre in the death camps, the rebellion and destruction of the Warsaw ghetto, and the liberation of the concentration camps by the Allied forces in the Spring of 1945." —Back cover
