The Holocaust: A New History A01 By (author) N Doris Bergen 198 129 620 BC Paperback / softback 336 The History Press Ltd The History Press Ltd Stroud United Kingdom HBTZ1 The Holocaust HBWQ Second World War JPFQ Fascism & Nazism 1.3 NHTZ1 NHWR7 JBSR NHTB JPFQ The Holocaust Second World War Social groups: religious groups & communities Social & cultural history Fascism & Nazism 3MPBL c 1940 to c 1949 A full and detailed account of the Holocaust Six million Jews were murdered by the Nazis, but this is only half the story. Doris Bergen reveals how the Holocaust extended beyond the Jews to engulf millions of other victims in related programmes of mass murder. The Nazi killing machine began with the disabled, and went on to target Afro-Germans, Gypsies, non-Jewish Poles, French African soldiers, Soviet prisoners of war, homosexual men and Jehovah's Witnesses. As Nazi Germany conquered more territories and peoples, Hitler's war turned soldiers, police officers and doctors into trained killers, creating a veneer of legitimacy around vicious acts of ethnic cleansing and genocide. Using the testimonies of both survivors and eyewitnesses, as well as a wealth of rarely seen photographs, Doris Bergen shows the true extent of the catastrophe that overwhelmed Europe during the Second World War, in a gripping story of the lives and deaths of real people. Doris Bergen is the Chancellor Rose and Ray Wolfe Professor of Holocaust Studies at the University of Toronto. She has been researching and teaching the Holocaust for over twenty years, and is on the academic committee of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. 9780752449289 28042020 02 RRP including tax GB GBP 14.99 0.00 14.99 This price includes a tax element GB 20 Available 12 BERT GARD Y Six million Jews were murdered by the Nazis, but this is only half the story.
