"The best assessment available on the state of knowledge on the Final Solution, on motives, resistance, and collaboration, as well as the reaction of the outside world. This book is also the best short review of this tragic period."

Walter Laqueur

"It is an ideal introduction to the subject for any student of the Holocaust, and an authoritative summary for the experts."

How should we evaluate the roles of collaborationist governments, allies of the Third Reich, and the Jews themselves? Would there have been a holocaust without Hitler?
