Book Description:

The Holocaust was perpetrated by the Nazis as a means of eliminating the Jews from the planet. It was an unprecedented event in history, inasmuch as a nation state had never before targeted an entire people for extinction. Yet, more than half a century later, there is a tendency to forget, if not to relativize, the Nazi extermination campaign against the Jews. More insidiously, a vicious effort is being made in limited circles to deny the Holocaust. The Historical Dictionary of the Holocaust is another reminder of what happened to the Jews and other victims of Nazi Germany's genocidal policies. In the years since the publication of the first edition of the Historical Dictionary of the Holocaust a significant amount of scholarship has been published. The second edition expands upon the first with an updated chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and over 400 cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant events, personalities, issues, and films and literature_because much of the public derive their understanding of the Holocaust from the arts. Libraries will find this book to be an indispensable research tool.
