"A huge and hugely significant collection of much of the best Holocaust scholarship to appear in the last half-century." --Kirkus Reviews

"... magnificent... surely among [the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's] greatest achievements to date.... The range of the essays is nothing short of breathtaking." --Jerusalem Post

Fifty-four chapters by the world's most eminent Holocaust researchers probe topics such as Nazi politics, racial ideology, leadership, and bureaucracy; the phases of the Holocaust from definition to expropriation, ghettoization, deportation, and the death camps; Jewish leadership and resistance; the role of the Allies, the Axis, and neutral countries; the deeds of the rescuers; and the impact of the Holocaust on survivors.
