War and Genocide : A Concise History of the Holocaust Paperback / softback

Part of the Critical Issues in World and International History series

Description

In examining one of the defining events of the twentieth century, Doris L.

Bergen situates the Holocaust in its historical, political, social, cultural, and military contexts.

Unlike many other treatments of the Holocaust, this revised, third edition discusses not only the persecution of the Jews, but also other segments of society victimized by the Nazis: Roma, homosexuals, Poles, Soviet POWs, the disabled, and other groups deemed undesirable.

In clear and eloquent prose, Bergen explores the two interconnected goals that drove the Nazi German program of conquest and genocide-purification of the so-called Aryan race and expansion of its living space-and discusses how these goals affected the course of World War II.

Including firsthand accounts from perpetrators, victims, and eyewitnesses, her book is immediate, human, and eminently readable.
