Voices from the Holocaust
|Author:||Jon E. Lewis|
|Series:||Brief Histories Ser.|
The testament to a tragedy. "Voices from The Holocaust" follows the whole history of the 'Shoah' from Hitler's rise to power to the Nuremburg trials, but of course the exterminations and death camps of 'The Final Solution' take centre stage. It tells the story from the perspective of the people who were there, and were witnesses - on both sides - of the horror. While some of the eye-witnesses are well-known, such as Anne Frank, Primo Levi and Heinrich Himmler, the book includes recollections of camp inmates, SS Totenkopf guards and the British soldiers who liberated Belsen. Shocking, powerful and personal, Voices from the "Holocaust" retells history, written by those who were there.
First-hand accounts of the Holocaust from the rise to power of Hilter to the Nuremberg trials.
