With the aging of the survivors of the Holocaust, it is becoming increasingly vital that references dealing with this massively important event be made available. The attempted extermination of the Jewish Race-as well as the murders of millions of other victims the Nazis deemed "inferior"-must not be forgotten. The intention of this A to Z of the Holocaust is to focus on the unprecedented nature of the German assault on the Jews. Its purpose, therefore, is to provide the reader with the facts of the Holocaust with an emphasis on the central role Jews played in the Nazi genocide.
