LAURENCE REES – on The Holocaust.
How did the Holocaust happen? Why did the Holocaust happen?
Prize-winning author and former Head of BBC TV History programming, Laurence Rees has spent twenty-five years meeting survivors and perpetrators. Now, in his magnum opus, The Holocaust, he combines their enthralling eyewitness testimony, a large amount of which has never been published before, with the latest research to create the first accessible and authoritative account of the Holocaust in more than three decades.
His gripping narrative reveals the series of escalations that cumulatively created the horror; and proof of plans to kill not only Jews but millions of others.
