Students use their developing analytical skills to learn about the Holocaust the same way historians do: through primary source materials.

Students gain a unique understanding through:

  • Over 100 photographs
  • Excerpts from Nazi documents and transcripts
  • Maps
  • Diaries and records kept by the victims

"Thought provoking, informative, and stimulating. This is one of the best books in the field."

                                                                                                    --Elie Weisel

Topics include:

  • The economic roots of German anti-Semitism and the Nazi rise to power
  • Jewish resistance in the ghettos and concentration camps
  • The reaction of the outside world
  • The Jewish response in America

Each chapter concludes with a review of the critical facts learned and a page of thoughtful issues and questions to frame class discussion.

The companion student workbook contains dozens of exercises that build on the textbook material. Students develop their analytical skills by examining the facts and the evidence in greater detail.
