The Nazi murder of the Jews of Europe challenges human understanding. Historians have been working for decades to make that awful event understandable. This lucid, matter-of-fact survey of the encounter between the Third Reich and European Jewry describes what historians have learned and points out the difficulties they face in interpreting the ever-expanding documentary record.

Fully revised and updated, this second edition includes:

- A much expanded selection of original documents, many never before anthologised in English

- Added treatment of the role of non-Germans in the Holocaust and the geographical variations in Jewish response

- Additional consideration of the much-debated nexus between the Holocaust and modernity

- A new section on how 'the Holocaust' developed as a distinct historical topic

- Useful and informative Chronology, Whos Who and Glossary

David Engels book is a taut, compact narration that appeals to the intellect as much, if not more, than to the emotions. It is sure to be welcomed by students in departments of History, Politics and European Studies as well as by anyone trying to get to grips with this complex and far-reaching subject for the first time.

David Engel is Greenberg Professor of Holocaust Studies, Professor of Hebrew Studies and Judaic Studies, and Professor of History at New York University. His books include In the Shadow of Auschwitz; Facing a Holocaust, and Historians of the Jews and the Holocaust.
