Understanding the Holocaust describes the events of the Holocaust in terms that help students comprehend the events that led to the Holocaust as well as the atrocity itself. Two volumes are arranged in subject chapters covering topics such as antisemitism, contemporary views of the Holocaust and more.

Other features include:

  • Sidebars highlighting people or key facts
  • About 120 black-and-white illustrations, including photos, documents and maps
  • Glossary & timeline


"Provides an excellent introductory overview of a difficult subject. It is a reasonably priced set that can stand alone. Adding the companion volumes will offer greater depth by bringing firsthand accounts of these events to the students who read them. These books belong in all public and school libraries." -- ARBA (American Reference Books Annual) 1999
