During the Second World War, Adolf Hitler's
Nazis and their collaborators brutally and systematically murdered
more than six million Jews, as well as other targeted groups such
as Gypsies, homosexuals and the handicapped. The
Holocaust Chronicle: A History in Words and Pictures
is a startling archive, written and fact checked by top scholars,
recounting the complex and anguishing horrors of the Holocaust.
With a 3,000 item timeline that pinpoints the specific atrocities
in individual acts of cruelty, compassion and, at times, heroism,
this book recounts the most important years of the Holocaust and
its immediate aftermath. More than 2,000 photographs bear a vivid
and horrific witness to portraits of perpetrators and victims,
documenting one of the worst cases of mass genocide in the history
of the world.
