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.
