n June 1944 Freda Wineman and her family arrived at Auschwitz Birkenau the infamous Nazi concentration and death camp After a cursory look from an SS doctor Freda s life was spared and her mother was sent to the gas chambers Freda only survived because the Allies won the war the Nazis ultimately wanted every Jew to die Her mother was one of millions who lost their lives because of a racist regime that believed that some human beings simply did not deserve to live not because of what they had done but because of who they were Laurence Rees has spent twenty five years meeting the survivors and perpetrators of the Third Reich and the Holocaust In this sweeping history he combines this testimony with the latest academic research to investigate how history s greatest crime was possible Rees argues that while hatred of the Jews was at the epicenter of Nazi thinking we cannot fully understand the Holocaust without considering Nazi plans to kill millions of non Jews as well He also reveals that there was no single overarching blueprint for the Holocaust Instead a series of escalations compounded into the horror Though Hitler was most responsible for what happened the blame is widespread Rees reminds us and the effects are enduring The Holocaust A New History is an accessible yet authoritative account of this terrible crime A chronological intensely readable narrative this is a compelling exposition of humanity s darkest moment
