Knowledge begins with the basics.
The Holocaust: The Basics is a concise introduction to the study of this seismic event in mid-twentieth century human history. The book takes an original approach as both a narrative and thematic introduction to the topic, and provides a core foundation for readers embarking upon their own study. It examines a range of perspectives and subjects surrounding the Holocaust, including; the perpetrators of the Holocaust, the victims, resistance to the Holocaust, liberation, legacies and survivors’ memories of the Holocaust.
Supported by a chronology, glossary, questions for discussion, and boxed case studies that focus the reader’s thoughts and develop their appreciation of the subjects considered more broadly, The Holocaust: The Basics is the ideal introduction to this controversial and widely debated topic for both students and the more general reader.
