The destruction of nearly six million Jews during the Second World War is not only the unique tragedy of the Jewish people, but also a part of the history of the War. In this book, 25 of the leading specialists in Europe, America and Israel describe various aspects of the interrelation between the conduct of the war and the destruction of the Jews. These studies include analyses of the German army and administration, the policy of the fascist parties, the German satellite states, questions relating to rescuing Jews, and the Jewish Resistance.
