Mitchell Geoffrey Bard
Greenhaven Press, 2001 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 567 pages
Nearly 6 million Jews died during the years 1933 to 1945. In this unique volume, the authors trace the history of the Holocaust from the life of Adolf Hitler to the Nuremberg Trials and the creation of Israel. They examine the Nazis' plan to annihilate Jews, what life was like in the camps, the perpetrators of the horrific crimes and their victims, the resistance and the rescuers, and, finally, the liberation. The authors also discuss whether the Holocaust could have been prevented and examine the effect of the Holocaust today. Also includes a geographical gazeteer of important places and events, a glossary, a chronology, an appendix of prominent people, bibliographies, and a complete index.
