9780241297001: The Holocaust: A New History

[Read by Jonathan Keeble]

In June 1944, Freda Wineman and her family were dropped off at Birkenau-one of the Nazis' largest and deadliest concentration camps. With the nod of an SS official's head, her life was spared. With another nod, her mother was sent to the gas chambers. Freda's survival was a miracle, and her mother's death one of millions caused by an amalgam of violent crimes rooted in fanaticism, bigotry, complacency, and greed.

In this sweeping narrative history, Laurence Rees combines rigorous academic research with twenty-five years' worth of heartbreaking testimony to investigate how history's greatest crime was possible. ''Bergen-Belsen cannot be described in human language'' says Alice Lok Cahana, who was sent there from Auschwitz. But in a way it can, and the memory and significance of the era echoes through words like Alice's. Packed with never-before-told stories and astute analysis, Rees reveals that what became known as the Holocaust was in fact a series of escalating decisions, made amid a culture of deadly inventiveness, that developed into a worldwide catastrophe. The blame is widespread, Rees reminds us, and the effects are enduring.

The Holocaust is the first new, accessible history for thirty years, an authoritative account that offers new judgments on the key decision makers and brings renewed urgency to the Holocaust's role in our collective past and our shared future.

About the Author:

Laurence Rees is a former head of BBC TV History programs and creative director of BBC Television History. He is also the author of Auschwitz, which won History Book of the Year at the British Books Awards.

Review:

''A masterpiece... Rees' best book yet.'' --Andrew Roberts, author of The Storm of War

''Anyone wanting a compelling, highly readable explanation of how and why the Holocaust happened, drawing on recent scholarship and impressively incorporating moving and harrowing interviews with victims as well as chilling accounts by perpetrators, need look no further than Rees's brilliant book.'' --Professor Sir Ian Kershaw, author of To Hell and Back and Hitler, A Biography

''This is by far the clearest book ever written about the Holocaust, and also the best at explaining its origins and grotesque mentality, as well as its chaotic development.'' --Antony Beevor, bestelling author of Stalingrad, Berlin, and The Second World War

Buchbeschreibung Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2017. Hardback. Buchzustand: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Sunday Times top 10 bestseller Groundbreaking . You might have thought that we know everything there is to know about the Holocaust but this book proves there is much more Andrew Roberts, Mail on Sunday By far the clearest book ever written about the Holocaust, and also the best at explaining its origins and grotesque mentality, as well as its chaotic development Antony BeevorThis landmark work answers two of the most fundamental questions in history - how, and why, did the Holocaust happen?Laurence Rees has spent twenty-five years meeting survivors and perpetrators of the Holocaust. Now, in his magnum opus, he combines their enthralling eyewitness testimony, a large amount of which has never been published before, with the latest academic research to create the first accessible and authoritative account of the Holocaust in more than three decades. This is a new history of the Holocaust in three ways. First, and most importantly, Rees has created a gripping narrative that that contains a large amount of testimony that has never been published before. Second, he places this powerful interview material in the context of an examination of the decision making process of the Nazi state, and in the process reveals the series of escalations that cumulatively created the horror. Third, Rees covers all those across Europe who participated in the deaths, and he argues that whilst hatred of the Jews was always at the epicentre of Nazi thinking, what happened cannot be fully understood without considering the murder of the Jews alongside plans to kill millions of non-Jews, including homosexuals, Gypsies and the disabled.Through a chronological, intensely readable narrative, featuring enthralling eyewitness testimony and the latest academic research, this is a compelling new account of the worst crime in history.
