The Holocaust


The Holocaust was the systematic murder of Europe's Jews by the Nazis and their collaborators during the Second World War.

This commemorative volume describes Jewish life before the spread of Nazism in Europe and Nazi ideologies. The author discusses the mass murder, the death camps such as Auschwitz, the perpetrators, the witnesses, the escapees, the refugee havens and the 10,000 Kindertransport youngsters who were given safe haven in Britain.
