Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Essential Book This book brought the horrors of the Holocaust to life in a graphic (photos) and factual way. Every human being has a responsibility to educate themselves about the Holocaust, so this never happens again. One wonders how civilized people could ever commit such atrocities against another living being. The demonic devotion that people had in Hitler was terrifying. The deeds they committed in his name were horrific. A very thorough and painful examination of the Holocaust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scared to read the truth After a review of the book, the knowledge and curiosity of historical facts from that era, I was not too sure at first if this was a book I wanted to read. I agree with the other reviews 100%. Just hard to believe that this chunk of history really happened only 60 years ago. It numbed me to read quietly with disbelief blocking out everything around me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Archive for the ages This book will shock you. However hardened I thought I had become, I found this book deeply disturbing. As a gentile, I don't spend much time thinking about the Holocaust - yet I was pulled in by this Chronicle. It was like a slap in the face, one I needed to receive. NEVER AGAIN !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Holocaust Chronicle In the face of growing Holocaust denials this is a book that slaps one in the face with the terror and horror of those times. As memory fades and time passes a record of this inhumanity must be available to the public.

From Our Editors

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.
